NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Nine people have been displaced after a house fire on Rowe Street in New Haven.

New Haven Firefighters responded to 6 Rowe Street for a reported 2nd alarm fire.

The home was evacuated and the street was closed while firefighters worked to put out the flames.

“Because of the high winds, the fire was moving pretty quickly and we were also concerned about lines possibly freezing in the streets,” said New Haven Fire Chief John Alston.

One person suffered a minor injury; a burn to the hand and nine people were displaced as a result of the fire.
