LAWRENCE, MASS. (WHDH) - A massive fire forced two families from their homes in Lawrence late Thursday night, injuring two residents and one firefighter.

The fire started at around midnight. Cell phone video showed heavy fire pouring from the duplex at 336 Park Street.

A firefighter was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
