STRATFORD -

A fire Wednesday afternoon at a condo complex on Success Avenue in Stratford displaced dozens of people.

The fire marshal says he believes the fire started near a deck on the first floor, and then spread to a nearby propane tank around 4 p.m.

He also says that this caused the fire to spread up to the roof.
