Residents at a multi-family home in New Haven got an unwanted wake-up call when fire broke out inside the walls of the building early Monday morning.
New Haven fire officials said everyone got out of the home on the corner of Bassett Street and Winchester Avenue safely.
The fire appears to be electrical and was in the walls, fire officials said. It took firefighters about 15 minutes to contain it.
The damage was not extensive and residents were allowed back in the building once firefighters finished up.
Bassett Street was closed while firefighters worked but has since reopened.
