Thirteen people have been displaced and two firefighters were injured following a fire that impacted two houses in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

The fire at the three-story home on Melton Street started around 8:30 Monday night.

The fire quickly spread to a second house, but officials say it was vacant.

Two firefighters were transported to a hospital for minor injuries, including heat exhaustion. No other injuries were reported.

Officials will be back on scene Tuesday to determine the cause of the fire.
