Massive fire forces two families out of Medford multi-family home

MEDFORD — A massive fire at a multi-family in Medford forced two families out of their homes late Saturday night.

Two families, at least six residents, were living in the multi-family on George Street when flames began to erupt, according to Medford Fire Chief John Freedman.

The fire engulfed a significant portion of the home, prompting crews to raise a fourth alarm to call more manpower to the scene. Even after the bulk of the fire had been extinguished, a small army’s worth of firefighters still lingered at the scene after midnight, monitoring hotspots.

None of the residents or any of the responding firefighters were injured.

The fire was difficult to fight due to the high amount of small spaces in the home, said Freedman.

The Fire Department is actively investigating a cause.
