An electrical short circuit in the ceiling of a laundromat appears to be the cause of a 6-alarm fire that damaged a three-story building in Charlestown Friday morning, Boston fire officials said Sunday.
Firefighters battled intense winds and extreme cold as they worked to put out the fire on 144 Bunker Hill St. It took about four hours for Boston firefighters to extinguish the flames.
No one was injured in the fire. However, at least 20 people were displaced after the six apartments housed on the building's upper floors were destroyed by the fire.
