READING, Pa. - April 4, 2013 (WPVI) -- Officials say a blaze forced four families out of their homes in Reading, Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon.

One woman was checked out for smoke inhalation.
At least five homes were damaged and the Red Cross is assisting those families forced from their homes.
The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
