Officials say dozens of people have been displaced by a massive fire that ripped through multiple row houses in the Bronx.

They say six firefighters and three civilians were treated for minor injuries.

The FDNY says the blaze broke out just before midnight Friday on Valentine Avenue and East 180th Street in Fordham Heights.

The fire quickly escalated and spread to seven other two- and three-story buildings. It was contained at 3:04 a.m.

A fire department spokesman says 89 people have been displaced by the blaze.

Health officials advised area residents to keep their windows closed and stay indoors if possible due to acrid smoke from the fire.

Officials are investigating the cause of the blaze.
