Laundromat featured in Affleck movie ‘The Town’ burns down

BOSTON (AP) — A laundromat featured in the Ben Affleck movie “The Town” has been destroyed in a fire in Boston.

The Monument Laundromat in the city’s Charlestown section burned Friday in a blaze reported shortly before 7 a.m.

Officials say several people were displaced from apartments in the two upper floors of the three-story building.

No injuries were reported. The cause was still being investigated.

The Boston Fire Department said temperatures in the single digits made for tough work for firefighters and caused some hydrants to freeze. Thick ice built up on firefighters’ jackets, ladders and trucks.

Affleck directed, co-wrote and starred in the 2010 movie. He introduces himself to his love interest in a scene set in the laundromat, which sits a few blocks from the Bunker Hill monument.
