Seven people, including two children, were displaced on a snowy night in Boston when a fire broke out in their Mattapan home, and the fire department said deep snow was a challenge in fighting the blaze. The Boston Fire Department responded to 34 Fessenden Street night for a 2-alarm fire Friday night. As they battled the blaze, crews were ordered off rear porches when one firefighter fell through. The fire department said he was okay and continued working. There were no other reported injuries. Fire officials say the blaze in the basement traveled up to the second floor. The heavy fire was knocked down after fire crews encountered some challenges. In addition to deep snow, the fire department said high fences made it a challenge to get to the rear porches. Crews were checking for hot spots around 11:20 p.m.
