A two-alarm fire broke out early Sunday morning at a three-family home on Westland Street in Hartford, resulting in heavy damage to the building but no injuries to the occupants, a Hartford fire official said.

One firefighter was injured, according to Mario Oquendo Jr., the district chief and public information officer, but no medical services were requested for the injury.

The fire at 55-57 Westland Street was reported at 1:47 a.m. and is under investigation by the fire marshal’s office.

The home was deemed uninhabitable, and the Red Cross and the Hartford Fire Department’s Special Services Unit were working to assist the 10 adults and five children who were displaced by the fire.
