Fire in Willimantic Displaces ECSU Students

Several people are displaced after a three-alarm fire on Watson Street in Willimantic.

No one is hurt, but 11 people, including four Eastern Connecticut State University students, are displaced.

School officials said student affairs staff members are reaching out to the four students to find out what they need, including any alternative housing arrangements.

School officials said the fire was on the upper floor and the four students were in a lower apartment. They did not lose any belongings but cannot return to their apartment because of smoke and water damage. 

The university will arrange for on-campus housing and meal plans. They said the ECSU foundation has offered to fund other necessities.
