Firefighters were fighting heavy smoke, wind and ice while trying to knock down the flames.
Crews believe the fire started in the kitchen of an apartment building before spreading to the rest of the block.
The fire also damaged the Front Street Deli. Some residents were unable to put on shoes before evacuating.
