Fire forced more than a dozen people out of their home on Capen Street in Hartford this morning.

Fire broke out just before 9 a.m. and arriving crews saw smoke coming from the third-floor window.

“I smelled smoke coming through my window so I ran back down the stairs and I stuck my head out the window to see if it was this building on fire,  but it wasn’t. It was my building on fire,” Mariah Fisher, of Hartford, said.

Crews were able to keep it from spreading to the rest of the building and everyone who lived there made it out safely.

But it still led to some frantic moments as they rushed to get out.

Crews expect to be there for a few more hours, putting out hot spots.

The cause is still under investigation.
