Large Fire Damages Seymour Apartment Building

Firefighters responded to a large fire at an apartment complex in Seymour on Saturday afternoon.

The fire broke out at the Lynda's Empire apartment complex at 380 South Main Street.

Firefighters from Ansonia, Bethany and Woodbridge were called to the scene to assist with water tankers because Seymour firefighters had trouble getting adequate water from hydrants to fight the fire, officials said.

Fire officials said they will investigate the cause of the water problem.

No residents were injured, but one firefighter suffered a minor injury to his ankle.

Several residents were displaced by the fire.  The Red Cross was called in to help them find temporary housing.

Several residents are searching for their missing cats after the fire. Anyone who spots one of these cats should contact Seymour Animal Control.
