33 People Displaced After Overnight Apartment Fire in Hartford

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.
