Pair of Structure Fires 4/21/2014
Updated On: Jun 02, 2014

Norwalk Fire Dept. responded to a pair of structure fires 19 min. apart. The first fire was received at 1828 hours for a reported porch fire at 60 William Street Norwalk, Ct. A plume of smoke was visible while responding. E4 first due reported heavy fire in an outside porch attached to the house. E4 crew quickly advanced a hose line and began to attack the fire, while E3 began water supply operations. R1 searched the first and second floor for any fire extension into the home. Due to the large size of the porch both T1 and T2 began overhauling operations. E2 was assigned RIT during the incident. There were no injuries during the fire. The two occupants self-evacuated the home prior to FD arrival. Fire Inspector McDonald is investigating the cause of the fire. In all 25 firefighters were on scene.

The second fire was received at 1847 hours for a reported fire on the third floor balcony of 26 Belden Ave. Norwalk, Ct. Avalon Gates. E5 first due reported a sprinkler activation from the balcony holding the fire in check. T1 arrived and went to the balcony via the bucket to finish extinguishment and do some overhauling. E1 checked for water damage in the surrounding apartments. The occupant in the apartment was not aware of the fire until the sprinkler opened up.  No injuries were reported and the fire is under investigation by Fire Inspector Raila. During these fires mutual aid was received by New Canaan, Westport, and Rowayton FD to cover our stations.

Thank you
