Fire officials are investigating the cause of an apartment fire in Hartford that displaced 33 people on Sunday morning.
An officer on patrol duty on Shultas Place was approached by a citizen who informed him of a building fire around 12:45 a.m.
The officer notified a dispatcher and assisted with getting residents out of the building until firefighters could arrive, police said.
Two people were transported by ambulance to Hartford Hospital to be treated for non-life threatening smoke inhalation related injuries.
The fire was contained to a first floor apartment, but the building was deemed uninhabitable by licenses and inspections personnel, according to officers. Thirty-three residents were displaced as a result of the fire and are being helped by the American Red Cross.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
