A house fire in a multi-unit building on the city's northwest side Wednesday afternoon displaced 15 people and injured two firefighters, officials said. Earlier this week, a house fire on Milwaukee's south side spread to two nearby homes and displaced 14 people. Two firefighters were injured at the scene of Wednesday's fire at 7825 W. Hampton Ave., and were transported to a hospital, according to Deputy Fire Chief Erich Roden. The call came in around 1:30 p.m., Roden said. The fire spread to multiple units. "We had fire in numerous units," said Roden. The fire department and Milwaukee Police Department are investigating the cause and origin.
