    Firefighters battle 2-alarm fire in Revere

    Revere firefighters battled a two-alarm blaze this morning in a 2½-story apartment complex across the street from a fire station that closed several years ago, fire department officials said.

    Firefighters responded at 6:45 a.m. to reports of a fire at 630-634 Winthrop Ave., calling for a second alarm soon after.

    The building’s 10 residents, all adults, were evacuated. One minor injury to a firefighter was reported. The American Red Cross is providing emergency funds for food, clothing, and hotel stays, said spokeswoman Kat Powers.
