Six people, including an infant, were taken to local hospitals after fire broke out at an apartment building on Willard Street in Hartford Wednesday. 

Officials said they received several 911 calls from residents reporting smoke on the fourth floor. 

Crews removed 10 residents and six were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation, including the infant.

No burn injuries were reported and everyone is expected to be OK.  

The fire and smoke were contained to the fourth floor, but there is heavy water and smoke damage to the third and fourth floors. 

The fire marshal’s office will determine the extent of the damage and determine if people will be displaced.
