BOSTON, Mass. (AP) — Firefighters are battling a 10-alarm fire that has encompassed at least seven buildings in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Heavy flames emerged from residential buildings in a densely populated area of the city Saturday afternoon.
Cambridge police spokesman Jeremy Warnick says there have been some injuries reported but none of them are serious. He says the city has opened up a nearby youth center for families displaced from their homes.
A plume of smoke could be seen for miles. Fire crews were called in from surrounding cities and towns.
The first call for the fire went out at about 2 p.m. Saturday. Firefighters were still fighting the blaze as the sun went down.
A GoFundMe account has been set up for people who are looking to help those affected.
