CAMBRIDGE (CBS) – Three firefighters were hurt when their ladder touched a high-voltage wire as they battled a two-alarm blaze in Cambridge on early Monday morning.

The firefighters were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The three-story home on Brewer Street received significant damage by the flames. The fire started on the third floor and went on to consume most of that level.

The Red Cross is helping eight residents affected by the fire find a place to stay.
