A four-alarm fire at a four-story residential building on Beacon Street in Brookline has been brought under control.
Firefighters received a call about a fire in an apartment building at 1471 Beacon St. at about 9 a.m. It took several hours to evacuate the brownstone and surrounding buildings and douse the fire.
Inbound lanes of Beacon Street remain blocked off.
Ladders were extended to the third and fourth floors to reach residents, and a fire official said all residents have been accounted for.
One person was sent to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, according to a Brookline police dispatcher.
An investigation is ongoing as to the cause of the fire.
Earlier, residents reported on Twitter that the flames were shooting out of the roof.
"There are trucks from all the neighboring towns here to help. More than 10,'' according to a Twitter report.
