RANDOLPH − Five people were displaced after a fire broke out at an apartment building on Reed Street on Sunday night.

Firefighters received a report of a fire at the 24-unit apartment building at 27-29 Reed St. at about 5:50 p.m., according to a news release.

When first responders arrived at the building, smoke was showing from the front of the first and second floors and the roofline. 

All the residents had already escaped on their own. There were no reported injuries.
