6 rescued from massive triple-decker fire in Worcester

WORCESTER, Mass. — Six people were rescued from a home in Worcester after it went up in flames early Saturday morning.

Fire officials told FOX25 four adults and two children were on the top floor of the triple-decker when the fire broke out.

Firefighters brought a ladder to the window and helped all six climb out and get to safety. All were taken to UMass Worcester Hospital to be checked out for smoke inhalation.

Three companies were sent to battle the blaze as the flames melted the siding on neighboring houses.

No firefighters were injured and the flames were under control Saturday morning.

Fire officials are investigating.
