NEW HAVEN, Vt. (WCAX) - A fire tore through a New Haven apartment building Monday morning, temporarily shutting down Route 7.

Firefighters responded around 9:30 a.m. to the old home divided into apartments.

They battled heavy fire and smoke on the upper level.

Everyone got out safely, including one dog and one cat, but three other cats were missing.

Route 7 was completely closed for a while but has since reopened.

Investigators were on the scene trying to figure out the case of the fire.

The American Red Cross says it’s assisting four adults displaced by the fire.
