Large fire breaks out at Hartford strip mall

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Crews are on the scene of a large fire at a strip mall in Hartford Wednesday morning.

The two alarm fire broke out around 3 a.m. at a strip mall at 125 Barbour Street, near Judson Street in the North End of Hartford. The building has three businesses on the first floor, which includes J&J Market, and a residence above it.

The Fire Chief tells News 8 that the building was unoccupied at the time and that no one was injured.
