Building Fire in Everett – NBC Boston

Crews are still battling a fire that broke out in a building on Block 700 on Broadway in Everett, Massachusetts at around 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday.

The building houses a restaurant, Oliveria’s Steak Bar & Grill, and apartments above. All could safely exit the building, officials said.

Broadway is closed between Gledhill Avenue and Ferry Street. Ferry Street is also closed between Broadway and Sycamore Streets. Elm Street is the best alternative route. The police are rerouting traffic and asking people to avoid the area.

Crews from several communities responded to put out the flames. First responders said it would take a while to respond.

A man who lives nearby said he woke up from the smell of smoke.

“I mean to see that is shocking because when I got out of the house I said, ‘I’m sure I’ll see something like this,'” the man said. “Seeing that – it just blew me away.”

Further information was not immediately available.
