Ten people — as well as several pets — were displaced after a fire early Tuesday morning in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood.

The Boston Fire Department got called to the fire on Capen Street — close to the Mattapan Line, on the neighborhood's southern side — just after 3 a.m., the department said. The exterior fire went up the back of the three-family home to the second floor, and extended into the first floor, fire officials said.
