    Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a devastating fire that consumed a three-family home in Lawrence, Massachusetts this week.

    The three-alarm blaze broke out just after 9 a.m. Wednesday at a home at 274 Haverhill St., where only a pile of rubble and debris remains. Flames could be seen coming from the home’s roof as firefighters fought through thick clouds of smoke to gain access to the fire.

    A number of nearby homes had to be evacuated and cars were damaged due to falling debris. All 11 people who lived in the multi-family house managed to escape the fire unharmed.

    "I was born and raised in that house, my whole childhood just gone," resident Andres Rodriguez said.
