Meriden Home Catches Fire Twice in Two Days

This is the second fire at the same house in two days.

The fire marshal is being called to investigate after fires broke out two days in a row at a Meriden home.

The single-family house at 116 Capitol Avenue has been boarded up and vacant since a fire on Tuesday morning, but firefighters saw smoke coming from the house when they arrived this morning.

After getting through the boards put up yesterday, they extinguished the fire quickly and discovered that this fire started in different place than it did yesterday, so they believe it could be suspicious, officials said.

Three family members and two dogs were able to get out of the home without sustaining injuries after the first fire broke out yesterday and firefighters remained at the scene until noon.

Officials will likely be there longer today.
