2 Fires: Store, Apartments Damaged, Firefighter Injured in One Blaze; Utility Pole Lit Up Like Candle in Other

Two separate fires very close to each other on February 8 caused one utility pole to light up like a candle, and another damaged apartments and a store on Washington Street. Boston Fire tweeted about a fire around 10:15 am in a mixed-use building with Robert's Barber Shop on street level. The fire was on the second floor, and firefighters quickly knocked down the fire, which could be seen from the street. A follow-up tweet said that one firefighter was transported to a hospital with minor injuries, and that three apartments and the business were damaged by the fire. https://twitter.com/BostonFire/status/1755630693340606655

Later that night, just hundreds of yards away, Jason Frangos tweeted out video of a utility pole at Call and Williams streets on fire around 9:38 pm.
