Dozens homeless after 4-alarm fire

Officials say four firefighters sustained minor injuries and another person has been hospitalized for smoke inhalation at the site of a four-alarm fire that engulfed at least four houses in the Bronx.

Firefighters say the blaze started at 1308 Findlay Ave. at around 9:20 p.m. before spreading. A fire official said the blaze was declared under control shortly after midnight.

More than 200 firefighters responded to the fire, which is under investigation. Residents say there were illegal apartments sent up inside the house, which could have caused the flames to spread.

At least 30 people were displaced by the fire.

AP wire services were used in this report.
