More than 150 firefighters from 11 departments battled a two-home blaze Wednesday night on Linden Avenue in Hempstead, a fire official said. One firefighter was injured.  

Photos from the scene show two neighboring houses on the block engulfed by the wind-driven flames. 

Michael Uttaro, Nassau County assistant chief fire marshal, said one firefighter suffered a minor injury and was transported to Nassau University Medical Center to be treated for minor burns.

No other details were immediately available Wednesday night.
