Five people were displaced by a fire at a single-family home on Amherst Street early Tuesday, according to the Hartford Fire Department.

The family was home at the time of the fire and were able to evacuate without injury, according to District Chief Mario Oquendo Jr. of the Hartford Fire Department. Three adults and two children were displaced, he said.

Firefighters responded around 5:09 a.m. and the fire was extinguished within 16 minutes, according to Oquendo. There was fire and smoke damage throughout the home, he said.

The city inspector declared the building uninhabitable at this time, according to Oquendo. The family is being assisted by the Special Services Unit and American Red Cross, he said.

The fire is currently under investigation by the Fire Marshal’s office.
