The fire started at the rear of the homes on Woodcliff Street at 7 p.m., according to the Boston Fire Twitter page. The blaze was able to be put extinguished in under an hour.

Firefighters were also called to Dacia Street, where they quickly put out a fire at a one-story structure.

No one was hurt. The American Red Cross was called in to help out 15 adults and seven children.

The origin and cause of the blaze is under investigation. No additional information was immediately available.
