A fire caused extensive damage to the basement and first floor of a two-story home along Forbes Terrace on Wednesday afternoon but nobody was injured, according fire officials.

The two-alarm fire in one of the buildings in the multi-unit housing complex across from the Jewish Community Center started in the basement and caused structural, smoke and water damage, said deputy Chief Michael Mullen.

The homeowner, who was in the house when the fire started about 4:15 p.m., is staying with friends, Mullen said.

Traffic was restricted for several hours along Forbes between Murray Avenue and Wightman Street.
