A fire in a three-family home in Dorchester spread to nearby buildings and ignited a car early Friday morning, according to the Boston Fire Department.
Officials responded to a report of heavy fire at 24 Fairmount Street around 4:40 a.m. A 4th Alarm was ordered. Porches on the back of the building collapsed and the fire ignited a car in the driveway.
The flames extended to the two adjacent buildings, 20 and 26 Fairmount, and to a garage in the back of 28 Fairmount.
All companies are working. No further information was immediately available.
