Cigarette Sparked Fire on Boston Rooftop


Investigators have concluded that a carelessly discarded cigarette is the cause of a rooftop fire that caused a million dollars in damage at a Beacon Street brownstone on Monday night.

The Boston Fire Department reports that a flower pot was being used as an ashtray on the roofdeck of the six-story building. Flames damaged the roof and the top floor of the condo building.

There were no injuries reported and damages are estimated to be equal to one million dollars at this time.
