New Britain Fire Displaces 12 People

A two-alarm fire at a three-story building in New Britain displaced 12 people on Wednesday, fire officials said. 

Firefighters responded to 112 Wilcox Street just before 3:30 p.m., found heavy fire on the back porches and extinguished the blaze in around half an hour.

All three apartments were occupied when the fire started, but no one was injured. 

New Britain officials said the fire appears to have started on an upper-level back porch and rear porches sustained heavy damage, firefighters said. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
