A row house fire is quickly spread in Norristown in Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon, as six houses appear to have caught at least a little bit on fire.

The blaze was reported before 3:00 p.m. EDT and is on the 1000 black of Willow Street, reported ABC.

Firefighters were battling the fire from inside of the building that initially caught fire but were called out due to its rapid spread, reported CBS.

The fire was contained by 5:00 p.m., though smoke could still be seen coming out of the buildings.

A firefighter was taken to the hospital for a minor injury. No residents were injured. Three of the homes were vacant.

Norristown is about six miles northwest of Philadelphia.
