HOLYOKE, Mass. — Authorities say a body was found after a blaze ripped through four homes in Holyoke.

The fire was reported at a town house around 5 a.m. Saturday. It spread to three adjacent town houses before it was contained hours later.

Authorities say investigators entered the building and found a man’s body. The remains matched the description of a 30-year-old man who was reported missing after his family members had evacuated the fire.

The man’s identity hasn’t been released.

The blaze left about 14 people displaced.
