Massive fire engulfs Boston casket warehouse

There were no reports of injuries or deaths after a massive fire broke out in East Boston afternoon.

The fire at the New England Casket Company has proved resilient spewing out fireballs and lasting through nine alarms from firefigthers. Thick black smoke has been billowing out of the warehouse into Friday evening. Parts of Boston’s subway system are also down, according to Boston.com But an evacuation of the area proved successful. According to Boston Fire Department Commissioner Joseph Finn, the inferno was protected by its location above the sprinkler system in the warehouse. As the fire continues, concerns are rising over air quality in the area as the warehouse contained lacquers and thinners, according to ABC’s Boston affiliate, which also reported that one fire officer was being treated for smoke inhalation.
