DORCHESTER, MASS. (WHDH) - Firefighters braved brutal conditions while extinguishing a house fire in Boston on Friday night.

Crews responding to a reported fire on Roach Street just before midnight found smoke coming from a single-family home and encountered frozen hydrants, according to the Boston Fire Department.

A second alarm was ordered and Boston police and EMS worked to keep firefighters safe and warm as they searched for unfrozen hydrants, fire officials said.

Four people were displaced as a result of the fire. There were no reported injuries.

The blaze caused an estimated $150,000 in damage.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
