DORCHESTER – A wind-whipped fire at a 3-family Dorchester home spread to multiple surrounding buildings on Sunday.
Flames broke out around 10 a.m. in the area of Peverell Street and Cushion Ave. and spread to three buildings in the area.
One of the damaged homes was 25 Peverell Street, which is where Mark Wahlberg has previously posted about his family living there when he was younger.
"The three back decks were totally -- huge flames coming from them and you just saw it going deeper and deeper into the front of the house," said neighbor Sarah MacDougall.
A large Boston Fire Department response knocked down the flames.
Firefighters said the flames "traveled to multiple streets."
"It's absolutely tragic, I mean I know all the people around here. Some of the houses next door, the fire jumped to those houses. People are displaced," neighbor Frank Mancini said.
Two firefighters and one resident suffered injuries that were described as minor.
