Six-family home fire displaces Bridgeport residents

Authorities say a fire swept through a six-family home in Bridgeport Saturday, displacing more than 30 residents.

Firefighters say children playing with either fireworks or matches may have caused the blaze. They say no one was seriously injured in the fire.

Residents of the building say they lost everything they owned in the fire.

On Sunday, some went to the site to see what was left, but others said they could not bear to look.

The Red Cross put up most of the families at a hotel for the weekend. They say that service ends Monday.
