An early Sunday morning fire in Dorchester has left at least 17 people without homes, according to the Boston Fire Department.

The six-alarm fire broke out on Marie and Fox streets near Ronan Park and damaged a total of four triple deckers in the area. Fire officials said one of the triple deckers was believed to be vacant.

Department officials said on Twitter the fire likely did $2.5 million in damage.

One firefighter suffered an ankle injury but no other injuries were reported, according to Boston Fire.

The department says it is investigating the cause of the fire and the Red Cross is assisting residents.
