Hook Lobster Looks Ahead

This article is more than 11 years old.

The Boston Fire department says the blaze that devastated the waterfront landmark of James Hook and Company was probably caused by mechanical or electrical problems.

Officials on Wednesday ruled out arson in the seven-alarm fire that ripped through the lobster distributor's store almost two weeks ago.

The Hook family has run the place for more than 80 years. Now, as WBUR's Bianca Vazquez Toness reports, they're looking to the future.
