One person was injured in a massive fire on Gaston Street in Dorchester Friday morning.

Two fire trucks could be seen with ladders extended to the roof of a building where smoke appeared to be coming out of.

Officials said one man was transported to the hospital after jumping from a second-story window.

The fire, which started on the first floor at around 7:45 a.m., quickly spread to the second and third floors, leaving the building charred and windows broken.

No one else was home at the time, officials added. Two children who live at the home were at school at the time of the fire.

Two adults and three children have been displaced from their home following the fire.
