Porch arson 

An early report and prompt action by police left firefighters with nothing but smoke when they answered a call to 2442 Acton St. early Tuesday. 

Police arrived first when the fire—a suspected arson—was reported at 4:18 a.m. 

“They had it out by the time we arrived,” said Deputy Fire Chief David P. Orth. 

The incident is still under investigation by BFD’s arson experts.
