At least six people were displaced by a two-alarm fire in York City on Thanksgiving night.
First responders were sent to 572 W. Philadelphia St., a row house, just before 8 p.m. and arrived to find heavy fire, said David Michaels, acting York City fire chief.
The entire front the of the house was fully engulfed in flames, sending a plume of smoke into the air.
A second alarm was quickly struck, bringing in firefighters from surrounding departments, and off-duty city firefighters were recalled to help fight the fire and to provide coverage to the city in case another incident arose.
"We had a lot of fire coming out the back part of (the house)," Michaels said.
Crews made efforts to make sure the blaze didn't spread to the adjoining 574 W. Philadelphia St. and other surrounding houses.
Damage: Their efforts paid off and the blaze was contained to 572 W. Philadelphia St., a house converted to a two-unit apartment building.
The building sustained fire damage, including much of the siding on the front of the building burned off.
The house at 574 W. Philadelphia St. sustained smoke and water damage.
The Red Cross assisted at the scene.
Michaels said the fire started in the first floor bathroom, but the cause has not been determined as of Friday morning.
The damage is estimated at $40,000, Michaels said. No injuries were reported.
