ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Fire officials are trying to figure out what caused a fire that spread to three buildings and displaced more than 20 people in upstate New York.

The blaze broke out Wednesday afternoon in Albany. Authorities say the fire damaged three buildings containing 13 housing units.

Authorities say it took nearly 50 firefighters to control the blaze. No injuries were reported.

The Red Cross says it was helping several families displaced by the fire and a nearby church is offering temporary shelter for residents affected by the blaze.
