BOSTON (AP) — An estimated 60 families have been displaced from a large fire that ripped through a densely-populated neighborhood in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Saturday.

Neal Alpert, the chief of staff for Cambridge, Massachusetts Mayor E. Denise Simmons, said 60 is the “latest estimate” as of Sunday morning. The office is still waiting to learn the details of how many individuals that figure includes.

Fire crews remain on the scene of where the 10-alarm blaze jumped from one building to another, destroying at least eight structures. The cause is under investigation.

Alpert says the Red Cross is working with affected families to assess their immediate needs while local officials are determining their longer-term needs. Simmons is urging people to contribute online to the Mayor’s Fire Relief Fund she created to help the families
