Three people were rescued by passing witnesses when fire broke out at home in Bloomfield Tuesday.
Crews responded to a home on Cottage Grove Road in Bloomfield Tuesday evening. Fire officials said three people inside the house were rescued by two people passing by – a retired Hartford firefighter and a Plainville firefighter. A fourth person escaped the home under their own power.
All four victims were taken to Hartford Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Fire officials said the fire was difficult to knock down because it spread rapidly.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
