BOSTON (WHDH) - Boston firefighters had to climb 25 stories to extinguish a three-alarm blaze in the new Hub on Causeway development in Boston.

Crews responded about 4:30 p.m. Saturday to a report of a fire in the partially-built high-rise above North Station.

Firefighters were forced to walk up the 25 stories to fight the flames because elevator service wasn’t available.

Multiple companies worked together to get hoses and equipment to the fire.

The incident forced fire officials to temporarily close Causeway Street.

The fire, which caused an estimated $200,000 in damage, has since been knocked down.

No additional information was immediately available.
