Two Everett families have lost their homes in a fire, just days before the Christmas holiday, according to Boston 25 News. Around 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, firefighters responded to a report of a fire at 222 Vine Street. Upon arrival, the first responders found “thick smoke” rising out of the roof of a multi-story home, WHDH reported.

Fire crews used a ladder truck to put out the fires on the second and third story of the home, according to a video from Boston 25 News. Malden and Chelsea city firefighters also assisted in combating the blaze.

The two families including some pets were able to evacuate the house, safely officials told Boston 25. Additionally, fire crews told the news outlet they did “everything they could” to the family member’s personal belongings and Christmas gifts.

No injuries were reported in the fire, and the families are currently being assisted by the Red Cross, according to Boston 25. (Advocate photo by Michael Layhe)
