REVERE — Fire officials reported no injuries at a fire on Avalon Street in Revere Tuesday afternoon.

The department received multiple calls from teachers at the nearby Garfield Middle School, with reports of smoke.

“We received the call, and struck the box,” said Revere Deputy Fire Chief Chris Bright. “We arrived and found no one home.”

“We heard a dog was inside, but it ran away as we entered the house.”

The single alarm working fire was fought by two trucks from Revere, with a lift team from Chelsea.

“Luckily no one was home, but we do have five people displaced.”

One firefighter was injured when he slipped on ice. He was taken to Whidden Hospital in Everett to have his shoulder examined.
