Two firefighters were injured while battling a 3-alarm blaze at a downtown building in Seymour, authorities said. Fire officials said residents in two apartment buildings next door were evacuated as a precaution. About 13 residents are believed to be displaced, but officials believe they'll be able to return to their homes tonight. Crews said they worked aggressively to put out the fire, which quickly spread because of how old the building is. According to authorities, older buildings tend to hold a lot of heat and if there's a fire, it tends to move fast. About 100 firefighters responded and several nearby fire departments provided mutual aid. Five business owners are displaced as a result of the fire. In the building that was on fire, there was a massage parlor, two antique shops and a barber shop.
