‎This note deals with the systems of parabolic equations with local and localized sources involving $n$ components‎. ‎We obtained the exponent regions‎, ‎where $k\in \{1,2,\cdots,n\}$ components may blow up simultaneously while the other $(n-k)$ ones still remain bounded under suitable initial data‎. ‎It is proved that different initial data can lead to different blow-up phenomena even in the same exponent regions‎, ‎and moreover‎, ‎different blow-up mechanism leads to different blow-up rates and blow-up sets.
