The fire marshal is investigating a fire at an apartment building in Manchester early Wednesday morning.

The Manchester Fire Department responded to 340 Charter Oak St., a 4-unit apartment building, at 12:59 a.m. after a caller reported fire on roof at the back of the building.

Firefighters saw fire showing from the eaves at the back of the building and evacuated 13 people from three apartments.

The fire was knocked down by 1:27 a.m. but there was extensive damage to the roof.

No injuries were reported. The building was deemed inhabitable and the Red Cross is providing temporary relocation assistance.

The Manchester Human Services will be helping with long-term assistance.
