According to News Center the fires were reported around 11 PM last night (2-9-20) at 105 Hancock Street in Rumford. At least six people have been injured and three have jumped from buildings as the fire was spreading.

Reports indicate that large flames and waves of heat caused fire crews to have to back off during initial attempts at evacuating people. The fire rapidly spread to two other apartment buildings where authorities indicated people were screaming from the upper level windows.
