All Somerville fire companies and engines from Medford, Arlington and Boston responded to a reported fire at 31-33 Irvington Road Monday night at approximately 9:42 p.m. The two-unit condominium sustained severe damage and is currently deemed not habitable.  The blaze originated in a first floor bathroom ceiling and extended up to the attic inside the walls. A first floor resident was assisted by American Red Cross volunteers. The fire is not considered suspicious, possibly an electrical malfunction. However, at this time the cause remains undetermined. There were two minor injuries to firefighters.

    Thank you to the men and women of the Somerville Fire Department. I am always amazing to see them in action in the most densly populated city in New England. With houses so full of people and so close together it takes a lot of dedication, courage, and Professionalism to keep the citizens of Somerville safe. Thank you very much.

    Well, the thing burned down to the ground! Would the fire have spread?
