Firefighters battled a two-alarm warehouse blaze at 282 Lynnway near Market Street in downtown Lynn Thursday, which also spread to moving trucks parked at an adjacent U-Haul rental location.
Northbound Lynnway near Commercial Street was shut down for the operation, Massachusetts State Police reported, slowing traffic to a crawl. The road has since re-opened for traffic.
Homeless people were known to live in the building.
The call came into firefighters just after 3 p.m. Thursday.
