(Hamden Fire Department)

HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Crews in Hamden are trying to figure out what sparked up a condo fire.

The Hamden Fire Department responded to 154 Townhouse Road Thursday night on report of a condominium unit up in flames.

Crews say no one was home at the time of the fire. The people who live in the unit were away on vacation.

The people in the unit next door were able to get out safely, but their home suffered water damage.

Fire officials say a total of 6 units were directly affected by fire spread, smoke damage and the suppression effort, with first floor units sustaining water damage.

There were no injuries to residents or firefighters reported.

The Hamden CERT Team  coordinated with the American Red Cross to determine which residents would require emergency housing.

An investigation is now underway to determine the cause of the fire.
