Six people, including four firefighters, have been taken to the hospital after a five-alarm fire in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood Thursday morning.

None of the injuries is considered life-threatening.

Authorities believe the fire started in the basement of a triple-decker on Fairmount Street just after 11 a.m. Thursday.

They won't know the fire's origin for sure until the building is deemed secure.

An earlier version of this post said seven people were taken to the hospital. The fire department has since corrected its number to six.
