FRAMINGHAM - Framingham officials have advised that most of the individuals displaced by Saturday night’s apartment complex fire along Worcester Road have returned to their units.

First responders were called to knock down the three-alarm fire at 1630 Worcester Road, which led to 40 people being displaced and five being injured. City officials said that the four firefighters who sustained minor injuries have since been released from the hospital. Framingham Fire Chief Michael Dutcher added that one pregnant woman was taken to a local medical center following the blaze, which resulted in many apartment units becoming uninhabitable.

Since then, most people displaced due to the fire were able to return to their apartments on Sunday, according to city officials. Still, some 4th West residents are still reportedly without a place to stay, as the American Red Cross has been called to the area to help provide emergency sheltering alongside the complex’s management company.
