VIDEO: A fire raged through several buildings in Revere, Massachusetts, Thursday, sending smoke high into the air over a tightly packed neighborhood near the ocean. The five-alarm fire burned on Endicott Avenue, near the world-famous Revere Beach. Six buildings were damaged, three badly, Revere fire Chief Christopher Bright said, but it didn't appear that anyone was hurt. At least 15 families have been impacted, and firefighters were seen removing dead animals from a building. Aerial footage showed flames rushing up the sides of at least two homes as firefighters on cranes doused them with water. The smoke could be seen for miles. One building appeared to have gotten the brunt of the damage. It seemed to be a double-wide triple-decker apartment building, with two apartments on either side of each floor.
