Rick Fontana Photo Firefighters battled two fires that forced six families out of their homes Saturday in Fair Haven and Beaver Hills.

The first fire came in around noon at 135 Lloyd St., according to Rick Fontana, the city’s deputy emergency management chief.

The single-alarm fire roared through a three-story wood frame house at 135 Lloyd, then spread to 131 Lloyd before firefighters doused the flames, Fontana said. Four people from two families were forced out of their home; the Red Cross put them up in a hotel. One firefighter was hurt and was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital for treatment.

Across town at a quarter to 4 p.m., another single-alarm fire lit up a home at 340 Norton St., according to Assistant Fire Chief Ralph Black. There were no injuries. About eight people will have to be relocated due to that fire, Black said.

The cause of both fires remains undetermined, he said.
