LYNN, MASS. (WHDH) - Crews battled a massive house fire on Sachem Street in Lynn on Thursday that tore through a six-unit three story residential building.

Firefighters responded to the scene around noon. Aerial video showed smoke and flames extending through the roof of the building.

Crews had doused the flames as of Thursday afternoon as fire investigators moved in to assess the cause of the fire.

The fire moved fast, working its way into the attic of the building, according to Lynn Fied Chief Dan Sullivan.

Firefighters at one point launched a drone with thermal imaging capabilities to help pinpoint fire locations. 

No injuries were reported, with Sullivan saying working smoke detectors helped everyone inside at the time of the fire get out safely.

The Red Cross is helping residents displaced by this fire. The cause remains under investigation.
