Six people are displaced and a firefighter was sent to the hospital following a two-alarm fire in Brighton Sunday evening, Boston Fire Department spokesman Steve MacDonald said.

The fire started in the home’s first-floor front bedroom, damaging a corner of the first and second floors. The building also sustained water and smoke damage throughout, MacDonald said. The fire’s cause is still under investigation.
