BRIDGEPORT - Three people were sent to the hospital after a fire raced through their Bridgeport home.

It started around 3 a.m. yesterday at 182 French St. and firefighters say it quickly spread throughout the third floor.

Investigators say seven people live in the house, and the three who went to the hospital were not seriously hurt.

Firefighters say they had some problems getting to the home because of piles of snow and ice.
