Five homes caught fire early Wednesday morning in East Cleveland on the same street where there was a house explosion over the weekend. The fire was first reported around midnight on East 125th Street, just south of Superior Avenue, about a half-mile from Sunday's house explosion. Cleveland Fire spokesperson Lieutenant Mike Norman said that initially East Cleveland firefighters arrived to find two homes on fire, and the flames spread quickly. Cleveland firefighters along with Cleveland Heights firefighters were asked to assist once it was determined that the water supply in the area was not going to be adequate to fight the fire. Crews had to run hoses from Superior Avenue to the fire scene and use multiple engines to get the water to the area before they could begin fighting the fire.
