NEWTON, Mass. — Massive flames and smoke filled the night sky near Boston, Massachusetts, over the weekend.

State and local officials are investigating the cause of a four-alarm fire at a residence in Newton Friday night.

Firefighters found the 5,000-square-foot home fully engulfed in flames when they arrived on the scene around 10:30 p.m.

The blaze caused a large section of the three-story structure to collapse.

According to fire officials, it took crews three hours to extinguish the flames.

There were no reported injuries.

NBC Boston reported that the owners of the residence were not home.

On Saturday, crews worked to demolish the rest of the house.
