New Haven residential fires displace at least 10 families

Officials say two firefighters were injured while battling the flames.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A fire broke out at a three-story residential building at the corner of Lamberton St. and Arthur St. on Thursday afternoon before the flames appeared to ignite the top floors of a building next door.

New Haven fire crews responded to a 2-alarm fire just after 4 p.m.

According to witnesses, the fire may have jumped from one building to one next to it. The smoke from the fire could be seen from Interstate 91.

Two firefighters were injured in the fire: one from falling debris and another injured their hand. Both were treated for their injuries and released. 

No residents were reported injured. The Red Cross said they were helping ten families, 17 adults and three children, following the fire.
