HARTFORD--Firefighters responded to fire at a business on Barbour Street and Judson Street early Wednesday morning.

The building houses a barber shop, convenience store and restaurant on the first floor. The second is housing, but is currently vacant.

The fire department says a hazard was created because the flames hit high voltage primary utility lines that supply the neighborhood. Eversource responded and de-energized the lines so the fire could be extinguished.

No one was hurt, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
