Harrisburg –  Pennsylvania State Police and Harrisburg Fire Marshalls are investigating a fire that broke out early this morning in Harrisburg.
 
The third-alarm fire forced people out of their homes into the cold as firefighters battled the blaze.
 
The fire broke out in the 2100 block of North Fourth Street around 6 a.m. in a row home.
 
Dozens of firefighters worked for over an hour to put out the blaze, shooting water from hoses from the ground, on top of fire engines, from ladders, and from on top of the building.
 
Harrisburg Fire Chief Bryan Enterline said that the fire damaged four of the homes in the row, and everyone who lived inside those homes were accounted for and were uninjured.
 
Firefighters had to do more than just battle the fire, they had to battle the elements. Because of the cold temperatures, water on the ground turned to ice, and many firefighters slipped and fell. None of the firefighters were seriously injured.
 
Those who were in the homes that were affected were awoken by neighbors screaming that there was a fire and to get out of the home.
 
When they got out of the home, they described flames and smoke billowing from the building.
 
The official cause of the fire has not been released.
