An eight-alarm wind-driven fire hit three homes and a car on Lexington Street in East Boston last night prompting a massive fire department response two weeks after two firefighters were killed in the Back Bay, fire officials report.

I cant believe it man, Im crying, Im crying, said resident Jose Silva, who lives on the second floor of the building. He said a friend called him and told him about the fire. His two children were on the first floor when it happened. Fighting back tears, Silva added that he heard everyone in the condominium got out safely.

I cant believe it. Thank God.

Firefighters arriving on the scene busted the windows of a BMW that was parked in front of a fire hydrant so they could run a hose through it to fight the fire. They sprayed down the roofs of the wood-frame triple-deckers as a throng of people looked on.

I'm surprised parking in front of a fire hydrant isn't illegal there.

ZERO sympathy. If you are going to be such a d!ck as to park your car in front of a fire hydrant, then you deserve to have it violated severely by those trying to save lives. Hell, I'll bet the owner lived or was in one of the units on fire. Talk about Darwin in action.

Classic case of the BMW hubris. Who would have known that law was established with the peoples' best interest in mind?

Looks like they smashed his windows too haha

If I recall, isn't there a few other photos on the web of this sort of situation, and the cars being also BMW?

LOL reminds me of the movie Backdraft when they smashed the windows of a Merc parked in front of a hydrant also.

No sympathy.
