KENSINGTON –  A massive 3-alarm Kensington fire left numerous people homeless Monday night, with one firefighter suffering minor injuries.

The fire broke out at 8:42 p.m. on the second floor of 312 Parkville Avenue off East 8th Street and quickly went to three alarms because the fire was roaring from the rear and was difficult to access, fire officials said.
