Fire Damages 2-Family Home in Meriden

A fire forced several people from a home in Meriden on Wednesday morning.

Flames broke out in the attic of a two-family home on Bunker Avenue around 3:20 a.m., according to fire officials.

All of the residents got out of the house before firefighters arrived and no one who lived in the house was injured, fire officials said.

Firefighters found heavy fire in the attic.

"There’s extensive damage in the attic and on the second floor," Deputy Chief Ryan Dunn said.

The homeowner called 911 and reported some type of electrical problem, but investigators still haven't determined what started the fire.

The families will be displaced for some time, Dunn said.

Two firefighters received minor injuries while fighting the fire.

Crews from Wallingford and Berlin were called in to help with the fire.
