At least 50 people were forced from their homes as a fire tore through an apartment complex on Warner Street in Hamden Monday night.

Crews responded to 42 Warner Street sometime around 7 p.m. and found fire showing from several windows on two floors of the complex.

Fire was also shooting through the roof, according to Hamden Fire Chief Gary Merwede.

Several residents were rescued from apartments, Merwede said. There were no injuries, he said.

All on-duty fire companies in Hamden responded to the blaze. Fire crews from New Haven, North Haven, and Wallingford all responded to the scene to assist Hamden firefighters.

There are 22 units in the apartment complex. Chief Merwede said the building was a total loss.

As many as 50 people are now without a home, according to Merwede.
