Firefighters are battling a four-alarm blaze on Hunting Street in Cambridge that has heavily damaged at least two buildings Monday morning, officials said.
No serious injuries were reported, the Cambridge Fire Department tweeted around 7:55 a.m. Displaced residents were told to gather for assistance at the Frisoli Youth Center on Willow Street.
The department first tweeted at 5:50 a.m. a report of a structure fire at a building on Hunting Street, near the intersection of Cambridge Street. At 6:21 a.m. fire officials tweeted that all companies had evacuated the building.
An hour later, the blaze was still considered active and fire companies from several neighboring communities were still struggling to contain the fierce flames.
Around 7:45 a.m., the department tweeted that “fire had extended” into the building on the left hand side of the building where the fire was first reported.
The primary fire scene is 6 Hunting St., officials said, which is listed in city assessing records as a mixed use three-story building assessed at $808,900. The 3,328-square foot building was built in 1900.
The fire is located in the Wellington-Huntington neighborhood near the Somerville line.
According to Eversource, about 600 customers are currently without electricity when power was shut off to the neighborhood as a safety precaution.
No injuries have been reported.
An MBTA bus has been sent to the area to provide temporary shelter for anyone displaced by the fire, officials said.
