    Three people were injured in a fire that damaged six town homes in Manassas, Virginia, early Thursday morning.

    Firefighters were called to a home in the 10900 block of Pope Street at 12:45 a.m. and arrived to find heavy fire coming from a home in the middle of the row, fire officials said.

    The blaze spread quickly to adjoining homes, officials said.

    While fighting the fire from inside, two firefighters needed to make a quick exit when conditions changed. But while trying to leave, they became slightly disoriented and declared "mayday," officials said. Nearby personnel helped them out of the building.
