LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - A man in his 70s died in a fire in a multi-family home in Lawrence on Thursday evening.

Fire officials said the fire also displaced seven other residents.

Authorities said the fire was largely contained to the first floor unit, where the victim was found. They haven’t released the name of the victim but said his daughter was among the survivors. No other injuries were reported.

Officials are also still investigating the cause of the fire but say it does not appear to be suspicious.
