Norwich – No one was injured when a fire destroyed a six-family home at 218 Washington St. this morning, according to police.
The fire began at 8:17 a.m. and was under control within a couple hours, said police.
Residents said four of the units were occupied at the time of the blaze. One of them, Rosemarie Trentley, said firefighters rescued her two cats from the fire. She has lived there since 1970.
All Norwich fire departments responded to the call, with mutual aid from Bozrah, Mohegan and Jewett City. Fire officials could not be reached for comment.
