One person consoles another at a blaze that damaged eight units in the 400 block of Sample Street in Millvale, Sunday, May 8, 2016.

Crews spent Sunday morning battling a three-alarm blaze that spread through multiple row houses in Millvale and injured one firefighter.

Dispatchers said the call came in before 8 a.m. about a fire on Sample Street. The fire started in one of the middle units and quickly spread to seven others.

Five homes were damaged by the fire, and three others sustained water damage, Millvale Assistant Fire Chief Karl Cavanaugh said.

One Millvale firefighter was taken to a hospital to be treated for burns. No other injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire was unknown.

Officials with the American Red Cross said 13 adults and four children were displaced by the fire.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
