EL CENTRO, Calif. (KYMA, KECY) - Three homes caught on fire on Saturday in El Centro, causing people and pets to be displaced.

According to the El Centro Fire Department (ECFD), the fire started at around 12:07pm, and that the fire started at the first home, located in the area of W. Heil Avenue and S. 7th Street.
