Officials say a fire broke out at a two-story home in Williamsburg early Saturday morning.
They say fire trucks were called to 458 Lorimer St. shortly after 2 a.m.
About 100 firefighters were called to the scene and because of the way the wood building was built, they say the fire spread quickly to two other homes.
The Red Cross said four families were affected by the fire.
Twelve adults made it out of the home safely and three of them now require emergency housing.
No injuries were reported.
Fire officials are investigating the cause of the fire.
