A child was taken to the hospital with smoke inhalation after a bedroom fire at a home in Stamford Wednesday afternoon.
Fire officials said they were called to an apartment at 46 Seaside Avenue around 2 p.m. All of the occupants had escaped after being alerted to the fire by smoke detectors.
It took firefighters around 30 minutes to get the flames under control. The fire, which started in a second-floor bedroom, caused heavy damage to the second color, and there was water damage to the first floor.
One child was taken to Stamford Hospital for treatment of minor smoke inhalation, fire officials said. Twelve people were displaced.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
