Methuen fire leaves mother and child in hospital

METHUEN, MASS. (WHDH) - A rapidly growing fire in Methuen forced dozens of people out of their home Saturday night.

Officials say the fire in the multi-family home on Pleasant Street was started by a previous fire in the attic.

Everyone in that building made it out safely, but a mother and child living next door were hospitalized for smoke inhalation.

Fire fighters say the alarms in the home did not go off.
