Three homes were damaged, causing ten people to flee after an early Saturday morning fire in Southeast D.C.
The fire apparently started in one home in the 3500 block of 21st Street Southeast sometime after 4 a.m. Saturday. The heat from the blaze caused home on one side of the original structure to also catch fire, but damage was lessened due to sprinklers inside.
A second home, separate from the original one on fire, was also damaged.
Ten people in the three homes were displaced. There were no apparent injuries. Investigators are trying to determine how the fire started.
If anyone wants to help the families, they can text 202-910-5099 or 757-499-0410 to assist.
