The blaze was controlled at 9:19 a.m., according to fire spokeswoman Mindy Talmadge.

The home where the fire started and an adjacent home were nearly destroyed, while two others sustained more moderate damage, she said.

Two people were taken to the hospital, including one with serious injuries. A firefighter suffered minor injuries and was also transported, according to Talmadge.

At least 11 residents were displaced in the blaze.
