SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – In the middle of the holiday season, dozens are now without a home after a fire destroyed part of a condominium complex in West Springfield.

Crews were called to a fire at a complex on Lina Lane near Brush Hill Ave. around 7 p.m. on Friday. Four units were destroyed in the flames.

Crews were finally able to put out the fire around 2 a.m. Saturday. Multiple fire departments pitched in to help, including Westfield, Holyoke, Springfield, and Agawam.

According to the West Springfield Fire Deputy, Dan Borsari, everyone inside the condos was able to get out safely.

Deputy Borsari told 22News that one firefighter was injured, but did not have to go to the hospital.

The entire condo complex is now without power or water. The Red Cross is assisting the families that lost their homes.

Crews are still trying to figure out what caused the fire to spark.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for victims of the fire.
