    On a record-breaking cold day, firefighters battled multiple house fires in Weymouth, Massachusetts, while also battling the elements.

    One firefighter simply explained, "everything is frozen," and that's only a slight exaggeration.

    One blaze began just before 5 p.m. on Rainbow Lane at a two-story home. Shortly after, there was a call for a fire on Commercial Street - also a difficult fire, for many of the same reasons.

    A third fire sparked around 6 p.m. at 29 Arnold Road.

    Fire officials say the first two fires were caused by residents heating up frozen pipes. The cause of the fire on Arnold Drive remains under investigation and officials say the damage is estimated at $200,000.

    No injuries have been reported.
