12 families in the New York city of Yonkers have been displaced by a fire in Westchester, which destroyed two houses and caused flooding on a metro rail line.

The fire -which took place Wednesday night- caused significant damage to the structure and took 55 firefighters roughly three hours to bring the blaze under control.

Two adjacent buildings were damaged and 10 firefighters were treated for injuries.

According to the Daily Voice, the fire led to flooding on nearby Metro-North train tracks, causing delays for riders on the Hudson Line.
