Firefighters worked in the extreme heat Wednesday to knock down a blaze in a multi-family home in Boston.

The Boston Fire Department said they were called to the home on Jersey Street Wednesday afternoon in the city's Fenway neighborhood. The fire started on the top floor and was contained to that unit.

As they worked to contain the fire crews had to rotate due to the weather. Boston is seeing temperatures in the 90s Wednesday.
