Our own intrepid BREB roving correspondent snapped the above photo of yesterday’s fire at 182 Beacon. Adam has a lot more photos. Check out the first one. The fire was a lot more serious than the smoke indicated.
The Boston Fire Department’s conclusion: “Fire Investigators have determined the cause of the roof deck fire at 182 Beacon St. to be careless disposal of a cigarette…. Specifically, on the roof deck was a flower pot being used as an ashtray.”
