Crews put out abandoned house fire in Hartford

Hartford

HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Crews have put out a fire that broke out in an abandoned home in Hartford this morning.

The fire broke out in the early morning and overnight hours on Madison Street. The house that caught fire has been abandoned and boarded up so the fire is being treated as suspicious because no one was supposed to be in there.

Police say there were three instances of trash cans and dumpsters catching fire in the hours before the house caught fire so police will look in to if all of those fires are connected.

Neighbors say they might have heard something about some kids running away from the house as the flames began, but that is still under investigation.

No one was hurt in the fire and Madison Street is now back open.
