A vehicle parked between two buildings on Lexington Street in East Boston catches fire and the flames quickly spread to nearby buildings, escalating to an 8-alarm fire.

Fire crews on edge as it was just two-weeks ago that a 9-alarm fire in Boston's Back Bay killed two firefighters.

According to the Boston fire department an estimated 33 individuals were displaced from 3 homes.

One firefighter was treated on scene and transported to a local hospital to be checked out.
