Massive fire destroys 3 homes in Lawrence
LAWRENCE, Mass. (WHDH) -- In Lawrence, massive flames spread from one home to at least two others, displacing many.
Red Cross volunteers are on scene helping the homeowners.
Intense flames ripped through the homes and black smoke could be seen from miles away.
Three homes have been destroyed as a result of the 3-alarm fire. Investigators don’t know yet how the fire started.
There was some type of water issue as they tried to fight the fire. It’s unclear what the issue was, but some fire hydrants were not being used to help fight the fire. Neighbors said there may have been a problem with the water pressure.
Everyone inside the homes managed to escape. Eight people have been affected as a result of the fire.
All efforts are currently focused on the one house that is still standing, but it too, will likely be a total loss.
