The homes are located in the 4600 block of West Montana Street.
Alaida Depray said her family has lived in one of the nearby homes damaged since 1966. Her mother, who is 93 years old, still lives there. She said a young couple lives in the house that was destroyed by the fire and had been working hard to fix it up “and make that house beautiful.”
“It seems like it’s pretty bad. It’s really sad,” she said.
The cause of the fire was not immediately known.
