BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say two dozen residents have been displaced following a fire that ripped through three homes in Buffalo.

The blaze broke out at about 10:30 a.m. Monday and fire officials say it quickly spread to two neighboring homes. Authorities say high winds and narrow streets made it difficult for firefighters to contain the flames.

Officials say two residents suffered minor burns, two others had smoke inhalation and one firefighter hurt his knee at the scene.

Investigators are trying to pin down what sparked the blaze.

Damage has been estimated at more than $500,000. The Red Cross is assisting those affected by the fire.
