LYNN, Mass. (AP) — Authorities say a four-alarm fire in a Lynn apartment building has displaced as many as 80 residents, but there were no reports of injuries.

The blaze in the three-story building with 25 units was reported just before midnight Sunday.

A nearby elementary school was opened as a shelter for the displaced residents, and the Red Cross was at the scene.

Firefighters say the fire spread quickly, sending residents scrambling down fire escapes.

There was no immediate word on a cause.
