LAWRENCE (CBS) – A three-alarm fire destroyed a triple-decker home in Lawrence Thursday afternoon.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports.

Flames broke out in the house on Water Street shortly after 1 p.m. and quickly spread through the entire building.

There were preliminary reports of people trapped, but authorities said it appears that everyone inside escaped safely.

The fire chief told WBZ-TV the fire likely started on a grill on a second floor porch.

The heavy flames and smoke made it appear as through a second triple decker had also caught fire, but authorities said it did not.
