Historic Cambridge building burns

Officials investigate cause of the fire at 1790 structure

May 11, 2008

CAMBRIDGE - A historic building dating to 1790 and most recently used as a law office was destroyed by fire in Cambridge yesterday morning, according to the state fire marshal's office.

The 2 1/2-story building was originally a home but had been converted to offices.

Deputy State Fire Marshal Joseph Zurolo said the structure has been vacant for the past five years. It had been up for sale for two years.

Investigators are trying to determine what sparked the flames. No adjacent buildings were damaged, and no one was injured.

The building is at 202 High St., several blocks from where two antique stores were destroyed and several other buildings were damaged in a fire in January.
