Some 800 guests were forced to evacuate Boston’s Intercontinental Hotel this morning after a 2:00 a.m. electrical fire was reported in the electrical room of the hotel garage. According to the Boston Herald, guests were forced to stay outside of the hotel for hours, while workers shut down the power in the hotel to deal with the fire. No one was hurt.

Outside of the city in Malden, two teenage girls were injured this morning when their house caught on fire. The Boston Herald reported that when police responded to the 911 call, they found that flames surrounded the house. The officers rushed into the burning house and were able to rescue a teenage girl on the first floor while another teenage girl, who was on the second floor, jumped from the burning building. Both girls were taken the Massachusetts General Hospital, and one of the police officers was taken to Melrose Wakefield Hospital.

Residential and building fires account for only 25% of fires nationwide according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), yet these fires account for 83% of deaths and 77% of injuries from fires across the nation. Cooking, heating and smoking are common causes of residential and building fires.

NFPA recommends that you check your smoke alarms regularly to make sure they are working and develop and practice a home fire escape plan.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a fire, you should consult a lawyer who specializes in fires and explosions to ensure that the appropriate investigation into the cause of the fire is performed. The Boston fire and explosion accident lawyers at KJC Law Firm, including Kathy Jo Cook and Timothy Wilton, have more than 90 years of experience litigating serious personal injury cases. KJC Law Firm handles cases for clients all across the state of Massachusetts.
