At around 11:30 a.m, authorities received multiple 911 calls reporting flames and heavy smoke from a house on 54th Street, between Landis and Pleasure avenues, according to Police Chief Thomas McQuillen 

Three side-by-side duplex homes, with a total of six units were damaged by the fire and smoke. Fire crews worked quickly to protect other neighboring homes on the block.
