    Fort Worth fire officials say wind was a factor in a fire that burned two homes and a vehicle.

    Firefighters were called at about 7:45 a.m. to 4005 Hawlet Street to one home that was on fire. When they arrived, the fire had spread to a vehicle in the driveway and caught the home next door on fire.

    Gusty winds were a likely cause for the fire spreading, crews said.

    Five people were in one home, two in the other, firefighters said. All made it out safely.

    No injuries were reported.

    Flames gutted the first home, it is likely a total loss, fire crews said. The other home had significant damage, but mainly to the east side of the home.

    The American Red Cross is on scene to assist the families.
