7 dead in massive apartment building fire in Massachusetts

Seven people were killed in an early morning fire at an apartment building in Lowell, Mass., authorities said. The three-alarm blaze broke out just before 4 a.m. Thursday in a nine-unit complex in the dense Lower Highlands neighborhood of the city, about 25 miles northwest of Boston. It took more than 40 firefighters a couple of hours to put the fire out, said Deputy Chief Jeff Winward of the Lowell Fire Department.
