EVERETT, MASS. (WHDH) - Two women died after an Everett triple-decker went up in flames late Sunday night, officials said.

Crews who began battling the large fire on Madison Avenue around 11:45 p.m. found the two deceased victims on the second-floor of the home during the early morning hours, according to Everett Fire Chief Anthony Carli.

“It’s a very sad day to lose people in a house fire like this,” he said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims.”

Their identities have not been released but they have been removed from the triple-decker, Carli added.

One firefighter suffered a minor injury to his knee.

About six people were displaced and are being helped out by the American Red Cross.

The home is believed to be a total loss, Carli said.

The cause remains under investigation.
