East Hartford, CT - Firefighters fought two separate house fires within 24 hours on July 15th and 16th. The first fire was reported at 9 Leichtner Drive and went to a second-alarm before being declared under control. There was a lot of smoke, and the humid weather helped bank it down to the ground. The second incident, dispatched as a working fire, was reported at 277 Sliver Lane and was quickly knocked down.
