Woken by fire trucks at 2:30 in the morning. It's a three alarm fire on Appleton St. off Willow. Contained to the one house, plus a live wire down. From what I could glean from the scanner, everyone seems to have gotten out of the house, but some people were taken to the hospital.

Now (3:15am) at the one-hour mark, it's still an active fire, but fire command on site has declined help from an additional company, and are saying "condition the same, companies making progress."

At 3:20am calling for a "20-foot collapse zone around the building. Slate shingles coming off the room, eminent [immanent?] danger of the chimney collapsing."
(does that mean they evacuate the houses on either side, I would assume?)

From my house I can see that Willow is shut down, and the bike path, so expect a similar 4 block radius.

(EDIT 1-30-17: BOTH dispensary applications have been continued to the Februrary 15th ZBA meeting)

Update on medical marijuana dispensary proposals for Davis Square (one would be in the Family Dollar site, the other would be on the basement level of the bfresh building):
BOTH proposals are scheduled to be heard by the Zoning Board of Appeals on Wednesday, February 1, 6:00 at City Hall (Aldermanic Chambers), though stay tuned because there’s a chance one or both will be continued to a later meeting date.  These are Public Hearings so anyone wishing to speak in favor of, or opposition to, either proposal (details below, with links to all plans) will have that opportunity.
