WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (WTNH) — All guests of a Wethersfield motel had to be evacuated Tuesday morning when smoke from a boiler fire filled the building.
Firefighters were called to the Comfort Inn at 1330 Silas Deane Highway around 5 a.m. and found a fire in the building’s main boiler, according to officials. They say that fire was contained to within the boiler, but smoke spread to upper floors, causing the evacuation.
Authorities say no one was injured and there was no structural damage to the building.
According to fire officials, the boiler caught fire due to lack of water in it.
