An overnight fire in a Taunton apartment building has left 36 people displaced. The fire began around 9 p.m. at the Chateau Estates on Hart Street.

The flames blazed well into the morning with the fire not being fully knocked out until nearly 3 a.m.

The blaze left two firefighters hospitalized. Fire officials said one fire fighter slipped on ice while extinguishing the fire and the other cut his hand.

One resident may have also been injures suffering minor burns but the individual refused medical treatment. 

Residents were evacuated from the three floor apartment building and brought to a nearby shelter set up at the Silver City Galleria Mall.
