    Officials are investigating after a fire broke out at a home on Washington Circle in West Hartford this morning.

    The fire at 121 Washington Circle started just before 5 a.m. Saturday, according to the fire department. It ignited in the back of the building in the basement and spread to part of the first floor.

    Firefighters said they’re not sure yet whether the damage is extensive enough to keep residents from returning home.

    “They’re not going to be able to get back inside right away, unfortunately,” said West Hartford Fire Battalion Chief John Sokolowski. “The fire is under investigation at this time. We still have more officials that are going to be coming to take a look at the building, so whether or not they’ll be able to get back in is unclear right now.”

    The residents made it out safely.

    It’s not clear what sparked the blaze. Authorities are investigating to determine the cause.
