Mark Wahlberg’s childhood home in Boston was damaged by fire

Actor Mark Wahlberg’s childhood home in a Boston neighborhood was damaged by fire on Sunday.

A nearby home in the Dorchester neighborhood is said to have caught fire around 10 p.m. 10 local time Sunday, with wind pushing the flames toward the other homes, Fire Commissioner Paul Burke said. The flames eventually took over three other nearby homes.

“So, it was a total of four three-deckers that were on fire, mostly in the back of the buildings on the porches,” Burke said.

One of the three-decker-style houses, 25 Peverell St., formerly belonged to entertainers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg. Burke said firefighters had to call six alarms to summon additional assistance due to the size of the fire. More than 120 firefighters rushed to the scene.

“It’s a tight street. They couldn’t get an aerial ladder up here because of the wires on the poles here. It’s a very tight street, so they needed the manpower to get out and get everybody in place,” Burke told WCVB.
