HANOVER, Pa. (WHTM) -

A two-alarm fire damaged three homes and displaced 13 people, including five children, in Hanover early this morning.

Hanover Fire Chief Jan Cromer said the fire in the 400 block of High Street was dispatched at 12:43 a.m., and firefighters arrived three minutes later to find heavy fire and smoke to the rear of 471, 473 and 469 1/2 High Street.

Everyone got out safely and there were no injuries.

The fire was under control in about 20 minutes but kept firefighters on the scene until nearly 4 a.m.

Cromer said it apparently started in 471 High, where the family with five children lived, and spread to the exterior of 473 and the exterior and interior of 469 1/2.

The fire appears to be accidental, but a state police fire marshal was notified due to the extensive damage and the investigation is ongoing, Cromer said.

There is heavy fire damage to 471 High Street and moderate damage to 473 and 469 1/2.

Damage estimates were not immediately available.

The American Red Cross is assisting those displaced.
