Investigators are probing the cause of a blaze at a dilapidated warehouse in Boston, which sparked late on Wednesday night.

At least one person was seen fleeing from the site of the Roxbury Warehouse, which was littered with all types of discarded units and furniture, the Boston Herald reported.

It looks like some squatters may get in there from time to time, Boston fire department spokesman Steve MacDonald told the Herald.

The fire spread through a row of buildings on Howard Street and one homeless person was removed from the building by rescue workers, but no injuries were reported.

Investigators are looking to see if any of the occupants could have caused the fire that took place in the multi-story industrial building.  The damage caused to the building has been estimated at $150,000 by the fire department.

Officials have not said if the fire is suspicious or not, but no one has been taken into custody in relation to the blaze.

This was not the first time a fire broke out at the warehouse. In 2010, a set of abandoned fireworks sparked a fire that took an entire weekend to put out by a group of 200 fire fighters; it was recorded as one of the biggest fires in Boston's history.
