WORCESTER (CBS) –  Firefighters battled a massive 4-alarm blaze this afternoon that left ten residents homeless.

The fire, on Forbes Street, broke out shortly after noon Thursday.  Strong wind gusts made the fire difficult to fight.

A firefighter was injured fighting the flames, but is expected to recover.  Investigators remained on scene into the evening.  There is no word on the cause of the fire.
