Two People, Dog Rescued From Burning Home in Hartford

Two people were rescued from a burning home in Hartford early Sunday morning.

Police were first on scene at a house fire at 68 School St. just after 4 a.m. Sunday.

When they arrived, officers were told by police dispatch that there were people inside the home.

One officer ran to the back door, kicked it open and located the family and their dog.

There were no injuries to the officers or anyone inside the home. 

The fire department said it took them about 15 minutes to get the fire under control and 30 minutes to extinguish it.

"At this point I haven't had a chance to go into the interior but from the exterior it looks like the second floor was a complete loss," said Deputy Chief Clifton Cooper.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
