Firefighters converged on 18 Estes St. at 3:30 a.m. Wednesday, quickly sounding three alarms for a fire that swept through the house.

District Fire Chief Steve Archer said four adults and two children all related and living in the home escaped unharmed. He said the two and 1/2 wood-frame house is a total loss with fire damage throughout the interior.

“This was a very stubborn fire for Lynn firefighters,” Archer said.

He said the fire appeared to start in the home’s first floor. In addition to fighting the fire, Archer said firefighters initially searched for a resident reported to be in the home. It was subsequently determined that the resident left the home safely.

Swampscott, Salem and Malden fire departments provided mutual aid while Lynn crews fought the fire.
