Residents of a Delray Beach duplex are without a place to live after a fire swept through one side of their building in the 200 block of Southwest Fourth Avenue Sunday afternoon.
“Heavy flames” were shooting from one of the units when firefighters arrived shortly before 3 p.m., according to Capt. Kevin Saxton of Delray Beach Fire Rescue. Fire crews extinguished the blaze quickly, however, both units of the building are too damaged by fire, smoke and water to be habitable, Saxton said.
No one was home in the side of the building where the blaze started.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
