An apartment building in Brookline caught fire Monday, bringing out Boston firefighters to help extinguish the blaze.
The multiple-alarm fire flared up in a building with about 30 residents on Commonwealth Avenue near Brighton Avenue near Packard's Corner at about 4:15 p.m., authorities said.
Boston and Brookline firefighters both worked the fire, which sent smoke into the evening sky. Dozens of emergency vehicles were at the scene.

After over an hour, the Boston Fire Department said that the blaze was knocked down and its firefighters leaving the scene. No one was hurt in the fire, though the residents were all displaced.
Firefighters "made short work out of a potentially very difficult situation," said Keith Flaherty, chief of operations for the Brookline Fire Department.
A resident who lives on the third floor told NBC10 Boston they heard a popping sound before the power went out. They then went to the window and saw smoke.
There was no immediate indication of what caused the fire, officials said, but smoke detectors helped alert people in the home.
