Dozens Left Homeless by Fire on Long Island: Officials

Dozens of people were expected to be displaced from their homes Saturday by a fire that swept through a condominium building on Long Island, officials said.

Four firefighters and one resident sustained minor injuries, which were attributed to the intense heat-wave temperatures, Nassau County fire officials said.

The fire started on the second floor of the building and quickly spread to the third floor. The cause of the blaze hasn't been determined.

About 20 fire Departments from area towns responded to the blaze at 36 Cathedral Avenue in Hempstead, authorities said.

The local Red Cross was assessing the needs of the building's residents. The responders expect that at least 50 people will be displaced by the fire.
