Fire displaces Norristown residents from their rowhomes

- "Really upset. It's horrible," said Raul Rosalis.  He and other families wrapped in blankets they got from the Red Cross stood outside their burned out row homes in Norristown after a fire earlier this evening.

"I think we're going to go to a hotel right now and see what's next," said Rosalis. He says he rushed home from work after a friend called to tell him his house on the 1000 block of Airy Street was on fire.  His 6 family members who were home got out.

"I saw my family. They're upset and crying," he said.  The fire started around 4 o’clock. Two hours later firefighters had it under control. Skyfox flew over as smoke billowed from the homes. Four of them sustained damage. People who live nearby say they rushed over to help.

"I ran down here and knocked on people's doors," said Bill Conicelli.

Investigators say no one was hurt. Neighbors who watched it from beginning to end say they’re surprised everyone got out ok.

"There was a lot of white smoke and the next thing you know the whole row was on fire so it was crazy," said Daniel Wissert.

No word yet on what started the fire.
