One person is dead as a result of a fire that heavily damaged two three-story homes at Tremont and Sudbury streets on Saturday afternoon, officials said.
The victim lived on the third floor, and firefighters were able to get him out of the house as it was burning, Deputy Fire Chief Stephen Ayotte said. The man was taken to Waterbury Hospital, where he died, he said.
Ayotte said three firefighters were injured, and were treated at Watebury Hospital.
“There is a lot of damage to both buildings. They’re pretty well gutted,” Ayotte said. “The fire had a head start. Both houses were pretty well involved by the time we got there.”
Seven families, including 12 adults and three children, were displaced when two houses on Sudbury Street caught fire Saturday, according to a spokesman for the American Red Cross.
The fire also killed 47-year-old Victor Rivera, who died in a third-floor apartment in one of the houses.
