Fire crew are on the scene at a multiple-alarm fire in Hamilton raging inside two homes.

Hamilton Fire Services confirmed the blaze shortly after 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 22. The fire is burning inside two homes on Melbourne St., an area of detached homes just south of Dundurn St. and Main St. on the city’s east side.

Several fire crews were shown battling the fire in a video supplied by Hamilton Fire Service. They additionally confirmed the homes, which appear to be a duplex, were clear of all occupants. Fire crews will remain on scene for “quite some time,” the service confirmed.

In situations like this, first responders typically advise motorists to avoid the area until they’re clear.
