Several people were displaced from their homes in Hartford after a fire broke out just before noon on Sunday.
The fire was reported at an apartment building on Huntington Street.
The strong winds made fighting the fire difficult for crews, however they were able to put the flames out.
Two people were taken to an area hospital with difficulty breathing. No other injuries were reported.
People are being assisted by the Hartford Fire Department Special Services unit and the American Red Cross.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
