A massive fire on Wharton’s South Main Street damaged at least five residences and injured three people late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.
At 10:30 p.m., Wharton police responded to 183 South Main St. for a report of a fire, and patrols saw fire in the first floor of the residence, Lt. David S. Young said. The occupants of that residence and surrounding houses were evacuated, he said.
But the fire spread, moving first to the other side of the residence before jumping to two multi-family houses next door, he said.
