A home where the family of US entertainers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg once lived was damaged by a fire in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston.
The fire started around 10 a.m. (3 p.m. ET) Sunday at a nearby home but spread to three other buildings because of high winds, Boston Fire Department Commissioner Paul Burke said.
Two firefighters were injured and one resident was taken to the hospital. There was initially no information about the cause of the fire.
One of the homes affected was 25 Peverell Street, where the Wahlberg family used to live.
Mark Wahlberg visited the house during production of his Netflix film Wonderland in 2018 and 2019.
In a video posted to social media, the actor stands shirtless in front of the house and describes it as “where it all began.”
The homes affected by Sunday’s fire were a type of classic Boston architecture called a three-decker, a family home common in the city.
“There were a total of four three-deckers that burned, mostly in the back of the buildings on the canopies,” the fire commissioner told WCVB-TV. “It’s a very narrow street.”
Boston Fire Department spokesman Brian Alkins said 15 people were displaced by the fire. He estimated the damage to the buildings at $2 million (£1.7 million).
