LOWELL -- Fire Chief Jeffrey Winward expects six people will be displaced following a fire in a ten unit building at 94 1st St., which started around 3 p.m. Thursday.

No one was injured, he said. Firefighters were searching for a missing cat and extinguishing hot spots about 45 minutes after the fire was reported.

Winward said the fire started in the rear of the building.

At least three ladder trucks and multiple paramedics, responded to the scene. The Lowell Police Department was also on scene.
