BALTIMORE - Fire officials say a three-alarm fire has damaged a string of row homes in southeast Baltimore and displaced about a dozen residents.

Officials say the blaze broke Sunday about 6:45 a.m. in the 900 block of South Bouldin Street. Fire Chief Kevin Cartwright says the fire was brought under control in about an hour. Officials say the fire spread across the rooftops of the row homes. At least seven homes were damaged.

Officials say about a dozen people displaced by the fire.

Cartwright says one person suffered mild smoke inhalation and a firefighter twisted his ankle. No other injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
