Newtown Firefighter Injured at Boston College Blaze

The Boston College newspaper, The Heights, reported that a City of Newton firefighter was seriously injured while working at a dumpster fire on the BC campus last night.

The firefighter was injured when the fire truck unexpectedly "lurched forward" and ran over him. The assistant fire chief on the scene tentatively blamed the accident on "this damn equipment we have."

The fire was reportedly started by people -- who appear to be BC students -- who were burning books and papers in the dumpster. Today, May 15th, is the last day of the year-end examinations according to the BC academic calendar.

No word on disciplinary action yet on students who may have been involved in starting the fire.
