A Large Fire on a Roof in the South End Has Been ‘Knocked Down’

No one was injured, fire officials say.

Photos and videos emerged late Tuesday afternoon of a fire on a roof in the South End.

The Boston Fire Department tweeted from its official account that the blaze began at 73 Rutland Street. There were no injuries to report. By around 4 p.m., the “heavy fire” had been “knocked down.”

It was not immediately clear what caused it, but fire officials shared photos of a propane tank with one valve “broken off.”

Videos captured near the scene showed a large fire raging on top of the building’s roof.
