Firefighters were called out to battle a blaze that damaged a three story apartment building in Norwich Sunday morning. Emergency crews were called to 51 14th Street around 5:11 a.m. Officials said the fire started outside the building and spread inside to the attic. Crews performed a search for people in the building including one person who was said to be missing but later found safe outside. Firefighters were able to rescue several cats and a bird from the building. When the roof started to collapse, firefighters were forced out and took up a defensive position. Firefighters have put out the bulk of the fire two hours later. One firefighter suffered a minor hand injury and was treated on scene. No civilian injuries were reported. The Red Cross is assisting 12 adults and nine children.
