    Fire Displaces Over a Dozen People in Chelsea

    A large fire has displaced over a dozen people in Massachusetts.

    Several fire departments responded to an apartment building fire Friday afternoon in Chelsea.

    All residents evacuated, and none were injured. Over four dozen firefighters were on the scene, with several suffering exhaustion-related injuries.

    Fire Chief Leonard Albanese says about 15 to 25 people will be displaced, and that the fire damage covered the third and fourth floors of the building.
