HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- More than a hundred people are out of their Hartford apartment building, after fire tore through the top floor Tuesday.
It happened just after 7 PM on Marshal Street. The blaze started in the kitchen after a tenant there left a pot on a stove unattended. The fire was contained to the ninth floor kitchen and firefighters were able to get the fire out quickly.
"What happened? I went downstairs to my sisters to get the rent and my medication, and when I came back up, my whole apartment was on fire," said Mike Dixon, who accidently started the fire.
Four people suffered smoke inhalation due to the fire. One person was sent to Saint Francis Hospital, two received treatment on scene and were released, and one person walked away from the scene, refusing treatment.
All injuries were non-life threatening.
There were no injuries to firefighters.
Fire officials say there was smoke damage throughout the entire ninth floor and some water damage to apartments on the eighth floor, due to water trickling down the walls.
There is no known damage to any other floors at this time.
There are 115 units in the building.
Firefighters are still assessing the damage and aren't sure how many people will have to find shelter elsewhere.
