Firefighters responded to the 400 block of Talbot Avenue for a fire in a two and a half story wood-framed home. The Boston Fire Department described a "heavy fire load," but said that crews were able to "quickly" knock down the flames.

Crews were clearing as of around 2 a.m.

The Red Cross got involved to help one person who lived there, according to the fire department.
