7 People Displaced After House Fire in New Haven

Seven people are displaced after a two-alarm fire in New Haven on Monday morning.

According to New Haven Fire, there were multiple calls for a fire on the second floor of 27 Elizabeth Street with heavy smoke on the second and third floors.

When firefighters arrived, the three-family home was fully involved and the fire had torn through the roof.

Firefighters were ordered out of the building after there were concerns of possible collapse.

NBC Connecticut crews at the scene witnessed a firefighter being loaded onto a stretcher. He was transported to the hospital for a minor back injury, firefighters said.

Fire officials said it's possible that there were more than three families living at the home. 

Officials said Monday afternoon that four adults and three children are displaced.

One person was home at the time, but he was able to get out safely. Four adults and four children are now displaced, according to fire officials.

It is unclear what may have sparked the fire.
