High Rise Fire Doused Quickly
Firefighters in Hartford Tuesday night were able to contain a blaze to one unit on the ninth floor of a high rise apartment building at 10 Marshall Street.The call came in just after 7 o’clock and a second alarm was sounded due to the volume of smoke and flame.
It appears unattended cooking in the kitchen sparked the fire which caused smoke damage throughout the ninth floor and some water damage on the eighth floor.
Most residents got out of the building on their own, though a few needed some assistance.
Four people were injured,but only one was hospitalized with smoke inhalation.
