Firefighters respond to house fire on Charles Street in New Haven

New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Fire crews in New Haven have responded to a fire in a home on Charles Street Friday morning.

The fire started at around 6:30 a.m.

At least half a dozen fire units have responded to the scene on the corner of Charles Street and Dixwell Avenue, where firefighters say smoke was coming from the second floor of a home.

Fire crews had to go on the roof to extinguish some of the hot spots in the house. The fire chief said the ice on the ground makes fighting the fire a bit more treacherous.

People were inside at the time the fire started but made it out safely. Four people were displaced, and they are getting help from the American Red Cross.

The fire is now under control.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time.
