Engine 802 was first on scene and began to put a knock on the fire. The fire spread to 2 other homes on the block. The 2nd alarm assignment was hit to bring in additional man power. The fire was caused by an electrical malfunction in the walls, which made the fire difficult to fight. Two firefighters were treated for minor injuries.
