    The fire was called in just after 10 p.m. last night, and was said to have started from the third floor of the three-story building. Along with the Norwich fire department, the Mohegan Tribe Fire Department, Munich Fire Department, and Taftville Fire Department all assisted in containing the fire. The blaze was under control at 12:35 a.m. Sunday morning

    The injured firefighter was treated and released at an area hospital.

    The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
