ALBANY, N.Y. — A pair of fires wreaked havoc on city streets Sunday morning in Albany.

Multiple buildings were heavily damaged on Quail Street, leaving residents to try and come to grips with the sudden devastation.

The Red Cross says it's helping 15 families — 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 they're expected to recover.

What caused the fire is still unknown at this point.

Over on Sheridan Avenue, Albany firefighters had been dealing with flames that destroyed more homes.

The fire started shortly after 3 a.m. 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.

Officials say they're not sure right now if or how many of the buildings will need to be demolished.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time.
