Several families were evacuated from a four-story brick apartment building on Dwight Street while firefighters battled a fire inside of the building Monday afternoon.

Holyoke Fire Department crews responded to 787 Dwight St. at about 4 p.m.

Fire officials say the fire started because someone improperly disposed of their smoking materials. 

Only the fourth floor sustained smoke and water damage.
