More than 75 people, many of them elderly, were evacuated from their Wellesley condominiums yesterday after a fire in a basement electrical room knocked out power to the building.
Adams House, one of three complexes in the Wellesley Green development, is unlivable, said Robert Moore, the property manager.
It will take at least three days to correct the damage and complete an investigation of the fire, Deputy Fire Chief Rick DeLorie said. Residents were bused to Dana Hall high school after the blaze just after 1 p.m. The American Red Cross offered to provide hotel rooms for those with no other options.
