NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven firefighters responded to a fire in the area of Lamberton and Arthur Streets Thursday afternoon. The flames impacted two multi-floor houses on the top floors.
A News 8 crew was on scene.
Wind carried the flames to a building across the street. Two firefighters were hurt but are expected to be OK.
Ten families are without a home following the fire.
Crews started demolishing the buildings impacted by the fire Saturday morning.
New Haven Fire Chief John Alston told us, “As we were examining the building, we noticed that the building is distorted. It’s bulging. So it has structural damage. We still have high winds, but we’re right over the train tracks so that does give us cause that there can be imminent collapse.”
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
