HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — The Hartford Fire Department responded to a blaze that took on two homes on Magnolia Street early Tuesday morning, collapsing one, and displacing the eight occupants of the other.

911 calls began to come in to the Hartford Fire Department’s dispatch center at 1:59 a.m., reporting heavy smoke and fire at 90 Magnolia Street. Upon arrival, firefighters declared a working fire at the unoccupied, two-and-a-half story home, and worked to evacuate the neighboring residence at 92/94 Magnolia, which was already partially involved.

Seven adults and one child were evacuated from this second home. While a second alarm assignment was dispatched and quickly gained control of the extension, the damages to 92/94 Magnolia were significant enough to displace these individuals. Hartford Fire Department’s Special Services Unit and the American Red Cross responded to assist them in finding temporary accommodations.

90 Magnolia St. ultimately collapsed from the fire.

Albany Ave. and Magnolia St. are closed in this area as crews continue to work to extinguish hot spots. Hartford’s Fire Marshal is also on-scene investigating. There were no injuries, and at this time, is no insight into the cause of the fire.
