Nearly 40 people are without a home after a three-alarm fire raged through two apartment buildings in the Greenville section of the city last night, officials said.

At about 8:40 p.m., firefighters battled the blaze that involved 68 Neptune Ave. and 183 Garfield Ave. The three-story wood frame buildings sustained heavy damage from the blaze, city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said.

Helen Figueroa, who has lived on the first floor of the Garfield Avenue building since January, said the fire is said to have started after mattresses in the alleyway between the two apartments caught fire. ... bl.html#incart_river_home

"(It was) horrible," she said. "It started licking between the two buildings and it just grew."

The American Red Cross said at least 37 residents from 12 families were displaced last night. Sixteen residents stayed overnight at the Mary Bethune Center on Martin Luther King Drive and volunteers will continue to meet with displaced residents today.
