A fire early Saturday in a large rooming house at 201 Ashley Boulevard leaves a total of 15 people homeless.  Firefighters responded to the blaze around 7:30am.  There were no injuries reported.

A spokesman for the New Bedford Fire Department says the fire was located on the fourth floor.  He said the fire ignited in a mattress and is believed to be accidental.  The building had a large hole in its roof, with much water damage inside.  It was boarded up Saturday afternoon.

The American Red Cross says it’s assisting the occupants with housing.
