Family in Bridgeport homeless after house fire
A family in Bridgeport is homeless after a fire destroyed their house Sunday.
An 18-year-old girl and her younger brother were inside the home on Bishop Avenue when the fire started. Both were able to escape the house. The girl was taken to Bridgeport Hospital for smoke inhalation. Investigators say the fire was probably caused by a short circuit in a Christmas tree light.
Two firefighters suffered minor injuries when the floor collapsed underneath them.
