Boston, MA -- A six alarm fire destroyed a warehouse on Thursday night.

The fire broke out at 9pm at a furniture warehouse.  One firefighter was injured and taken to a local hospital for minor injuries.  No one else was injured.

A photo posted to Twitter shows flames shooting from the warehouse and smoke billowing.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this tims.
