HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Emergency crews were called to a structure fire on Main Street Sunday morning.
Crews responded to 1630 Main Street for a fully involved vacant recreation center in the city’s Clay Arsenal neighborhood.
Firefighters were able to knock down the fire quickly.
District Chief Rich Driscoll of Hartford Fire Dept. described, “On arrival, we fire out the roof — the previous fire building…we’ve been here numerous times before, so we knew, kind of, the conditions going into this ahead of time. Took everything on a very defensive approach, and went from there.”
Officials tell News 8 there were reports that sometimes homeless people go in that building and that there could have been someone possibly inside. However, firefighters searched the building and did not locate anyone inside.
There were no reported injuries. The fire remains under investigation.
