The 3 Park St. apartment building was unoccupied at the time of the fire. Burritt said the building housed New England College students who were out of town on Christmas break.

Nobody was injured battling the blaze, which was under control about 45 minutes after it was reported about 1:45 p.m. Monday, he said.
