Blaze Displaces Families

A two-alarm fire broke out this morning leaving two families out of their homes.

The blaze broke out shortly after 5 a.m. on the 100 block of Pine Street in Collingdale, Delaware County, Pa. 

Next door neighbor Miguel Cardes describes how he found out about the blaze.

"We were sleeping and somebody was banging on the door and 'saying there's a fire next door,'' Cardes told NBC10.

"I was like 'oh lord there's a fire everybody get up and get out' and we had to grab the kids and get out."

No one was hurt but the American Red Cross is helping 12 people from both homes who were displaced by the blaze.

More than two hours after the fire, crews remained on the scene investigating the fire.

The two-story home, which shares a wall with the Cardes' neighboring home, appeared to be heavily damaged -- especially on the second floor.

This block of Pine Street runs between McDade Boulevard and Chester Pike. The road was closed for the investigation and drivers could expect some delays in the area.
