    A police officer was injured in a fire in New Haven on Monday morning.

    A police officer was taken to the hospital after going into a burning house in New Haven on Monday morning to see if anyone was inside.

    The Howard Avenue house that caught fire sometime before 5:30 a.m. on Monday was supposed to be empty, officials said.

    The police officer who was injured was taken to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation.
