HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A Hartford firefighter is expected to be okay after being injured while fighting a blaze Friday morning.
Fire officials say the firefighter was taken to the hospital with an ankle injury after his or her foot fell through the floor. They say that firefighter has been treated and released.
The fire at 20 Cabot Street broke out around 8:50 a.m. and has displaced the people living in one unit. Officials say that unit sustained damage and needs to be repaired. The Red Cross says it’s helping a family of three, two adults and a child, with emergency housing, food, and clothing.
Some other units sustained slight damage, but all other tenants should be able to return home Friday night, according to officials.
Authorities say there are no signs of suspicious activity, but the cause of the fire has not been determined and is under investigation.
