HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Hartford firefighters are being credited for helping deliver a baby at a home early Friday morning.

Engine Company 15 was dispatched to a home on Fairfield Avenue just before 2 a.m., for the report of a woman going into labor.

When firefighters arrived, they already saw the baby’s head, so they jumped into action and delivered the baby with no complications.

Both the mother and baby were taken to the hospital for further care and evaluation.

This is the third baby delivered under the care of the Hartford Fire Department personnel this year.
