Electrical failure forces hundreds out of Bella Vista in New Haven

New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Hundreds of people in New Haven were forced out of their homes Friday night due to an electrical failure.

New Haven Mayor Justin Elicker confirmed to News 8 one of the towers at Bella Vista III (building E) on Eastern Street lost electricity around noon Friday.

The Carabetta Companies, the real estate firm that owns Bella Vista, said the supply line failure cut out power to the apartments, but electricity in common areas and for all life safety equipment, including the elevators, was not affected.

The outage impacted 170 households there.

All residents have been temporarily relocated to local hotels or are living with family, the Carabetta Companies said. Approximately 100 residents are in hotels.

Right now, officials with Bella Vista have not been able to determine the cause of or extent of the electrical failure. It is still unclear how long it will take to fix the issue.

No one was injured.
