Officials search for cause of Bridgeport fire

Investigators continue to search for the cause of a fire in Bridgeport yesterday that left nearly two dozen people homeless.

It happened yesterday morning on Artic Street.

Residents from the six-family home say they wish they could find and thank the passer-by who alerted them to the fire.

They say the man kept frantically honking his car horn and banging on a back door to alert everyone inside that the building was on fire.
