NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven firefighters say multiple companies were “heavily engaged” with a blaze that broke out overnight on Chapel Street.
Just after midnight on Wednesday, firefighters responded to a home at 1475 Chapel Street.
In a periscope video tweeted out by the department, one firefighter says the 2.5-story, wood frame home was occupied when the fire broke out. There is no word yet on whether anyone inside or on duty suffered any injuries.
They reported smoky conditions throughout, saying that their largely interior attack extended up to the second and third floors of the home.
New Haven police officers were on-scene, overseeing a road closure at the intersection of Chapel Street and Sherman Avenue. Crews had cleared and the road was reopened by 4 a.m.
