NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– A firefighter and a New Haven man are being treated in the Connecticut Burn Center at Bridgeport Hospital after a weekend fire.
It happened on Dickerman Street Saturday night around midnight. Three firefighters went into the burning two and a half story house to rescue a man who’d had a heart attack and was unconscious. They also rescued a dog.
One of those firefighters was burned during the rescue.
Officials say a hoarding situation made the fire difficult to put out.
The fire is under investigation. No word on the victims’ names as of this morning.
