New Haven, CT (June 5, 2019) – On June 5, just after 12:20 a.m., over 60 firefighters responded to the scene of a major house fire on Elm Street.
Crews arrived to the location to find the second floor and rear of the home showing heavy fire. Shortly upon arriving, the rear stairs of the home began burning as the fire spread to the third floor. As the fire spread to the home next door, crews worked to extinguish the fire and eliminate the possibility of interior damage to the second home.
As crews worked to battle the blaze, three firefighters sustained burns and other injuries and had to be transported to an area hospital for medical treatment. One person inside the home was also transported to a local hospital due to smoke inhalation.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those injured in this incident.
