This Easter did not go as planned for many elderly residents of an assisted living home in Braintree. Early Sunday morning, a four-alarm fire struck the Grove Manor Estates at 160 Grove St. Thankfully, nobody was seriously injured.

Red Cross volunteers sprung to action in assisting 16 displaced residents with support, food and shelter. A warming center was set up at a gym nearby.

See more coverage of the fire at NECN, The Patriot Ledger, and WCVB.
