LYNN — Six people were displaced after an overnight fire tore through a Henry Avenue home on Thursday, according to the Lynn Fire Department.

Lynn firefighters responded to 13 Henry Ave. at 3 a.m. and found the 2 ½-story building engulfed in flames, according to Fire Chief Stephen Archer.

The six residents were able to escape unharmed, but there was extensive fire damage to the third floor and the roof, with heavy water damage on the two lower floors, Archer said.

The Lynn Fire Investigation Unit is working to determine the cause and origin of the blaze.

Lynn Fire was assisted by crews from Chelsea, Revere and Saugus. Red Cross is assisting with finding housing for residents. It’s unclear if the house is salvageable, Archer said.
