WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Firefighters are on the scene of a house fire in West Haven Thursday evening.
The 2-alarm fire is at a two-store home on Admiral Street. It appears the fire is mostly contained to the back end of the second and third floors of the home.
At least three firefighters were treated on scene for heat exhaustion: one was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital for burns to his lower leg.
The fire chief tells News 8, three people were inside the home when they arrived, but they were able to get out safely.
Fire, police, and EMTs are currently on scene.
We’re told even though Thursday wasn’t as hot out as earlier this week, the humidity and confined spaced for crews made things tough.
Chief Michael Terenzio explained, “Conditions here are tough and any firefighter that’s watching this right now could appreciate the situation that we’re faced with and combined forces work as one.”
Officials are working to determine the cause of the fire.
