On 7/19/2020 Boston Fire companies were dispatched to a reported fire on the corner of Fuller and Atherstone streets in the Dorchester neighborhood of the city. First-due companies had heavy fire on multiple floors and struck a second alarm. While flames were put down fairly quickly companies also had to deal with high humidity and a heat index around 100.
