Person Hurt in Quick-Burning Fire in Lawrence, Massachusetts

A fire spread quickly Thursday in Lawrence, Massachusetts, leaving 11 residents homeless and one person injured.

The blaze was intense from the start when it broke out around 4:30 p.m. on Manchester Street, keeping firefighters busy for hours.

As the fire raged, employees from a nearby restaurant raced to help. They opened up their restaurant so the victims, normally their customers, could stay warm as their home burned.

One person was transported to a hospital in Lawrence, and later to another in Boston. The nature of that person's injuries was not known.
