Several crews respond to Norwich house fire

New London

NORWICH, Conn. (WTNH)– Officials are investigating the cause of a fire that broke out in Norwich on Thursday.

The Fire Department tells News 8 that several firefighters were called to a fire that broke out at the home at 27 McKinley Avenue around 9 a.m.

One person was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation. The victim was taken to the William Backus Hospital, but was then transferred to the burn unit at Bridgeport Hospital.

A woman in the house next door spotted the fire.

“She came down knocking on all, like banging on everyone’s doors and she was saying, “get out. Fire get out, get out. There’s a fire,” Glenn Edwards of Norwich said.

The Fire Marshal also responded to the scene and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The home was blocked off but it’s unclear if it is inhabitable at this time.
