On Monday evening, a three-alarm fire at an Everett triple-decker home injured two firefighters and left a dozen people homeless. An estimated 70 firefighters were called the scene of the fire, and fire authorities originally closed off a section of Route 99 in Everett. They later reopened that stretch of road.
Firefighters saved four residents, among them a 10-year-old fire victim, from a third floor apartment. The left side of the building later collapsed. All 12 people who were living there had been accounted for, but they are now homeless.
Two injured firefighters were taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
