The fire spread into the walls of the building, according to Deputy Fire Chief John Gelinas, but firefighters were able to prevent the blaze from spreading to the top level.

All occupants were evacuated. Gelinas said a total of 12 residents have been displaced temporarily for the next two days while the building is inspected.
No injuries were reported. Cause of the fire has been deemed accidental. Damages have been estimated at $125,000.

The flames extended into the walls and up to the third floor, according to Deputy Fire Chief John Gelinas.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
"Right now there's nothing that indicates arson," Gelinas said.
Gelinas said three Cambridge firefighters were sent to the hospital, one suffering from a sprained ankle, one with a back injury, and another with a cut hand. None of the injuries were life-threatening.
The estimated damage is $50,000.
Gelinas said while at the scene, firefighters were able to rescue a number of pets from the home including a hamster and "at least two ferrets."

Late yesterday, fire officials had not determined the cause of the explosion, but Cambridge Deputy Fire Chief John Gelinas said gas valves in the fourth-floor laboratory were turned on for tests at the time.
The explosion blew out much of one wall on the brick building's fourth floor facing Bent Street and sent the ceiling and ventilators on the third and fourth floors crashing down.
"Pressure from the explosion pushed through the building and pushed the building out," Gelinas said.
