New Haven, CT (May 6, 2019) – Just after 3:20 a.m. on May 5, calls came in to the New Haven Police and fire department regarding a fire at 150 West Street in New Haven.

Upon arriving at the structure, firefighters located two individuals in the back stairway of the house. The two individuals were removed from the house and transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where they were later pronounced deceased.

Three individuals inside the house jumped out of the second and third-floor windows. One of the individuals who jumped out of the second floor was injured and transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Four firefighters working to put out the fire sustained burn injuries and suffered from smoke inhalation. Those injured received medical treatment for their injuries.

Our deepest condolences go out to the families of the two victims who lost their lives in this incident.

We pray those injured are able to make a full recovery.
