A few hours ago, there was a fire in the Fens, (that’s right near Fenway Park for the non-Bostonian readers). Plumes of black smoke were flying in the air and were visible to anyone in the area. As you can see above, my apartment window had a good view, only a few blocks away.
This happened over three hours ago, and there isn’t a hint on Boston.com. I didn’t know what was going on until I did a simple hash-tag search for #fenway. Sure, I don’t know if it was arson, or what the cause even was, but at least I know what the source of the fire was.
Just thought I’d throw this out there.
UPDATE: The Boston Phoenix has an ongoing blog/section of their site devoted to the fire. Check out some of their videos and photos.
