A multifamily home in Bridgeport was burglarized after laying vacant due to a fire Sunday that displaced dozens, police say.
Police were investigating the home on Olive Street Thursday thefts that residents say occurred after the house was boarded up following the fire.
Officials say a pair of seniors, along with their dog and another family member, are living out of their car now because of the fire.
"Victimized twice! It's insane! I feel like we're already grieving and now it's like, they're making it worse," says Jenny Tran.
Before the fire struck, News 12 reported on a lack of heating and hot water on Olive Street in December.
A state investigation was prompted. Residents say they want to know if the earlier crisis played a role in the fire that led to the burglary.
