QUINCY, MASS. (WHDH) - Fire crews extinguished a blaze that broke out at a multi-family home in Quincy on Sunday morning.

Firefighters responding to a reported structure fire on Copeland Street around 5:30 a.m. found heavy flames shooting from the second and third stories.

Six people were inside the home at the time of the fire.

“My daughter and I were asleep and I heard someone scream, ‘call 911 call 911 get out of the house’ and when I looked outside there were flames on the first floor so I ran upstairs to the third floor and grabbed my daughter and my dog and ran out,” one resident said.

There were no injuries, but residents of the three-floor apartment building were displaced.

Firefighters say the blaze began on the third floor and traveled up through the second and third floors.
