A Hartford firefighter’s home was damaged by fire early Monday morning.
Fire broke out at the two-story home at White Street and Grandview Terrace around 3:30 a.m. and smoke detectors woke 33-year-old Jamaal Gibson, his girlfriend, their daughter and Gibson’s uncle. They were able to escape and no injuries are reported.
Deputy Fire Chief William Kerr said the heaviest fire was on the porch and it spread to the second floor.
Gibson, who has been with the fire department for six years, said he was told the fire is believed to have started outside the residence.
The state fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire.
