Two firefighters were taken to Union Hospital in Lynn, one with an eye injury and the other with a shoulder strain, Collier said. They were treated and released.

No one living in the apartment was injured, Collier said. The department is looking into the possibility that the fire started outside the home.

Collier said the roof of the building was completely burned off, and the rest of the home sustained heavy water damage.

He said officials didn’t know how many residents were displaced by the fire.

The building, owned by Eastern Massachusetts Housing Corp., is composed of six three-bedroom units. Mat Eddy, a maintenance coordinator for the corporation, said nine residents were living in the building.
