Multiple families were displaced Monday on 12/30/2019 at around 11:30 am by a fire that tore through two neighboring apartment buildings.

About 120 firefighters battle the fire started on the top floor of 1753 Seddon St. off East Tremont Ave. before spreading to 1751 through the shared wall.

The fire managed to affect all three floors of both buildings before firefighters were able to get it under control.

Everyone managed to make it out safely, with no injuries to those living there or firefighters.
The damage to the apartments inside was extensive.

The American Red Cross is helping eight adults and two children with temporary housing and financial assistance. Fire marshals are investigating the cause of the fire.
