Boston Fire Department officials ruled a fire that ignited early morning Sunday in Allston as arson.
BFD spokesman Steve MacDonald said firefighters responded to the fire at 15 Long Ave. at around 7:50 a.m., where firefighters found a garage with two cars inside on fire. The blaze was extinguished and BFD investigators determined the cause of the fire to be arson.
MacDonald said the garage was a standalone structure with no residents. No injuries were reported.
Boston Police Department officers are assigned to the fire investigation, but the BFD will continue to lead and conduct the investigation, MacDonald said. There are no suspects yet.
On Oct. 27, police responded to a five-alarm fire that completely destroyed a wood-frame house in Allston, causing two residents to jump from the building. Fire investigators later determined the fire was caused by a carelessly disposed cigarette.
