WORCESTER - A three-alarm fire at the construction site for the new Doherty High School led to one worker transferred to the hospital with injuries on Monday.

According to a briefing by city officials, roofing insulation caught fire, causing the blaze that led to a traffic advisory near the Highland Street and Newton Square area.

“This was like a punch to the gut. We’ve put half a billion dollars into our public school students the last few years and worked very hard on the construction of this building,” said Worcester Mayor Joe Petty.
