BRIDGEPORT - Firefighters battled a blaze that broke out Sunday morning in Bridgeport, sending several people to the hospital.
Fire officials say the fast-moving fire quickly destroyed the Stillman Street home, leaving its occupants homeless. Officials say they found the exact spot where the fire started, but say it's too early to tell what caused it.
"It traveled the stairway up to the second floor ? [up] to the third floor," says Assistant Chief Keith Wallace, of the Bridgeport Fire Department. "There were no doors separating the hallway from the stairs. The fire just ripped through the whole house."
Wallace says two firefighters also required medical attention after combating the blaze.
