At least four people were injured Thursday after dozens of houses caught fire due to suspected gas line explosions in three communities north of Boston.

As of 7:30 p.m., Massachusetts State Police said they have responded to 39 fires in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover — and authorities expected that number to rise. Residents living in those communities who have gas service from Columbia Gas were told to evacuate their homes, police said.
