Fire Quickly Spreads Across Delaware County Row Homes

Fire tore through a set of row homes Monday morning forcing Delaware County residents from the home.

The blaze along Bickley Place in Chester, Pennsylvania struck a day after an earlier fire damaged a home on the same block.

On Monday, the blaze appeared to begin in an abandoned home next to the earlier fire scene then spread through a common roof to the other homes.

In total, five buildings were damaged and 19 people were displaced.

Luckily, no one was hurt and Monday’s blaze was brought under control around 3 a.m., said county dispatchers.

The American Red Cross helped residents forced from their homes.

The cause of Monday's fire remained under investigation.
