More than $731K raised to aid 125 displaced in Cambridge blaze

Arlington units help fight 10-alarm fire Dec. 3

UPDATED, Jan. 2: Arlington firefighters were among those from 20 communities battling a 10-alarm East Cambridge fire that caused one building to collapse, burned 15 others and displaced 125 people Saturday, Dec. 3. Investigators have ruled out arson, and damage has been estimated at up to $15 million, BostonGlobe.com reports Dec. 5.

Michael Workman, a designer for bostonglobe.com, told the website that the flames erupted in a three-family residence across from his home on Berkshire Street. The home had been undergoing renovations, he said.

He said he saw the blaze from his living room, and he called 911 about 3 p.m. before leaving his home.

The flames jumped across the street, setting the roof of another residence on fire, he said. A former church building nearby also caught fire, Workman reported.

As many as six people were hurt.

Arlington residents reported seeing smoke Dec. 3 from Robbins Farm Park.
