Police on the scene said the fire, reported around 8 p.m., is being treated as a crime scene at the until it can be determined otherwise because the initial caller was a screaming woman.

Responding units found red flames shooting from the roof of the three-unit building at 1357 Masonic Avenue. Residents in neighboring buildings have been evacuated and Masonic Avenue has been closed in response to the fire.

One civilian was treated for shortness of breath, police said. Neighbors say the building is occupied by the landlord, who lives on the ground floor and two couples who live in units on the second and third floor.
