One person is hospitalized after a two-alarm fire at a house at 70 Wilson Avenue in West Haven this morning.
When firefighters arrived, the smoke was heavy and one person was trapped, Deputy Chief Scott Scafariello.
They found the victim, a female, on the first floor. She is being taken to the hospital and Scafariello said her condition is not known.
There was heavy fire in the basement and it is now out, Scafariello said.
The icy conditions are causing some challenges for firefighters and Department of Public Works crews were called in to treat the roads to help firefighters battle the blaze.
