A house fire in Saugus sent up smoke and flames.
SAUGUS — Fire crews responded to a Walnut Street house fire Wednesday afternoon. Flames and dark smoke were visible from what looked to be the third level of the home, with crews extending a firetruck ladder toward a part of the roof that appeared to collapse.
Another ladder was set up on the side of the home, reaching up to a third-floor window. The extent of the damage to the home is not known at this time.
