Five people are in the hospital after a fire broke out at their home in New Haven early Saturday morning.

According to New Haven Fire Chief Michael Grant, the fire department responded to a structure fire at 35 Pendleton St. around 5:30 a.m.

When they arrived on scene, the home was fully engulfed in flames and heavy smoke was billowing out of the home.

The fire department took about 15 minute to fully extinguish the flames.

They rescued one person off of the second and another from the third floor using a ladder. The three other victims were able to get out of the home by themselves.

All four victims were taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
