All the occupants of the second home got out safely.

The third home was damaged by being close to the flames from the second home, and firefighters are working to protect it.

The houses on Washington are close together, and firefighters were trying to stop the flames from spreading further. Detroit firefighters were called to the scene to help battle the flames.
