Five-alarm fire in JP
NOTE: Boston Common is no longer being updated. For the latest Boston-area blog posts, please see Universal Hub
The First Baptist Church on Centre St is being consumed by a five alarm fire. I can see it in the distance from my window, I counted six helicopters hovering above my neighborhood until a few minutes ago.
The church is the large stucco landmark on Centre St next to JP licks with the big tower. Last time I was over there, I noticed that they had a huge temporary trailer on the front lawn, big enough to hold services in so I assume it was undergoing renovations. Its always sad when we lose these old buildings.
