A fast-moving fire hit four homes in less than 30 minutes. Firefighters tell Action News that the flames started around 5:30 a.m. in the 4600 block of North Camac Street in Philadelphia's Logan section.

At least one person was plucked from the roof by firefighters as they battled the flames.

By 5:53 a.m. the flames were under control, but 4 adjacent homes had suffered fire damage. Three of the homes were occupied.

Officials are still trying to determine the cause of the fire and firefighters continue to hose down hot spots in that section of Philadelphia.
