Man Dead After New Britain Fire

One man has been found dead after a fire at a New Britain apartment building, according to officials.

Crews responded to the fire at 55 Horace St. at 8:22 a.m. and the man was found dead on a bed in a first-floor apartment, officials said.

Two other people were taken to the hospital as a precaution.

The fire chief said the fire was small but there was a lot of smoke.

There are five additional apartments in the building and there does not appear to be damage to those units, according to fire officials. The building inspector will determine when the residents can return.

The road is closed and public works crews will be putting treatment down on the road.

No additional information was immediately available. The fire marshal is investigating what started the fire.
