BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) – Bristol firefighters rescued a man from a three family home after a Christmas Eve fire on Wednesday.

Firefighters said the fire started on the second floor of the house on Gridley Street around 5 p.m.  A man on the second floor was sleeping, and firefighters rescued him through a window.

Fire officials said it’s unclear if those who live there can return home before Christmas morning.

“There is no words. I’m pretty sure tears enough can explain having a home one day and then of all days, especially Christmas Eve, not having anything” witness Lauren Raymond said.

Firefighters also rescued a dog from the home. No one was injured.
