    Fourteen people were displaced by fire in Hartford this morning.

    Fourteen people, including three children, have been displaced by a residential fire on Blue Hills Avenue in Hartford.

    The fire broke out around 3 a.m. at a three-story house two doors down from a fire house.

    Multiple crews responded and it took about an hour to get the flames under control, but the house is inhabitable.

    “There is quite a bit of water damage to the third floor. The ceilings on the third floor, we have to take them down to access the attic area, so the whole building at this time is unlivable,” Deputy Fire Chief Dave Serpliss, of the Hartford Fire Department, said.
