The Boston Fire Department reports firefighters responded at noon to 1 Congress St. for what turned into a four-alarm fire that spread across several floors via duct work and shafts.
This is the Bulfinch Crossing complex that is going up as the Government Center Garage comes down - which has become increasingly troublesome in recent months. In march, several garage levels collapsed, killing one worker and shutting the Green and Orange Lines. In June, support columns that support what's left of the garage deteriorated so much the subway lines had to be shut again until they could be bolstered.
Two firefighters had to be transported to the hospital today with heat-related issues, the department says.
