SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

About a dozen people are without a home Tuesday night after a fire quickly tore through their Liberty Heights home. 

Fire officials tell CBS 3 the call came in for a home fully engulfed in flames shortly before midnight Tuesday. 

The home at 29 Vinton St. is torched after flames tore through. 

Homes on either side of that multi-family house were damaged as well. 

The Red Cross is assisting the families displaced. 

The cause is under investigation, and the home is considered a total loss.
