As many as 65 people have been displaced Monday morning after two massive fires in Albany.
The fires broke out early Sunday on Quail Street and Sheridan Avenue.
Multiple buildings were heavily damaged on Quail, leaving residents to try and come to grips with the sudden devastation.
As late as Sunday night, flames broke back out at some of the homes after fire destroyed them earlier in the day. This all happened while crews were preparing to begin cleanup efforts there.
The Red Cross says it's helping 15 families from the Quail Street fire, nearly 40 people, who are all displaced now.
Witnesses on the scene say the flames began just before 5 a.m. The Albany fire chief says crews arrived to find four homes already engulfed. One person was hurt, but that person is expected to recover.
What caused the fire is still unknown at this point.
Victory Christian Church is also helping people displaced by the Quail Street fire. They are asking the community to donate money for Walmart gift cards. Six thousand dollars has already been raised.
Each family will receive Walmart gift cards.
“We felt we really had to jump on top; there's a need right now," said Pastor Charlie Muller. “These are our neighbors, so we gotta reach out to our neighbors.”
If you want to help, you can send donations to the Victory Christian Church Fire Victims Fund, 118 Quail Street, Albany, NY 12206.
On Sheridan Avenue, crews began tearing down some of the damaged homes.
Officials say the fire started a little earlier, after 3 a.m. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but three buildings are being called a total loss.
The Red Cross says it's helping at least nine families, about 27 people.
It's unclear how many of the buildings will need to be taken down. The cause of this fire is also not known at this time.
