BROOKLYN - The FDNY says lightning is to blame for multiple fires on one Bed-Stuy street that left dozens of people homeless.

The first fire started at 166 Pulaski St. at around 11 p.m. Wednesday. Flames then broke out right across the street at 169 Pulaski St. at around 3 a.m. Thursday, and quickly spread to two other apartment buildings.

The Red Cross says it's helping about 10 families who have been displaced.
