Detroit (MI) firefighters respond to the reports of a fire in a dwelling in the area of Pilgrim and Grayview just after 8:30 Saturday night.

First-arriving companies found fire in two vacant dwellings across the street from each other and requested a second box alarm for the other house.

Companies took an offensive attack, making entrance to the house and venting the roof quickly bringing the fire under control. No injuries were reported from the fire.
