BOSTON (WHDH) – Firefighters rescued five children from a burning home on Cedar Street in Mattapan early Tuesday morning.
Firefighters say they had challenges getting to the flames to put them out.
“The obstacles fighting the fire were very narrow hallways, steep stairways,” said Deputy Chief Michael Hocking. “Wires were a big problem here – we couldn’t get our aerial ladders to the roof.”
Seven other residents were able to get themselves out of the building safely. All 12 people who were living in the home are now displaced.
