Fire At UHart Dorm Leads to Evacuation
A fire at a University of Hartford residence hall forced the evacuation of the building and displaced several students.
The fire was reported inside the Village Apartments just before 7:30 Thursday night. Two units had smoke and water damage as firefighters put the flames out. Everyone was allowed back in around 9:00.
The good news is that everyone got out safely.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, although a university spokesman says it started in the kitchen of a second-floor suite.
