At 2045 hrs. this evening the Norwalk fire Department responded to a reported structure fire,  upon arrival fire department units found a raised ranch home with the fire through the roof from the front door to the right side of the building where the living room dining room and kitchen was located,  along with the roof burning over the bedrooms the fire was extending up into the hallway and into the bedrooms. Fire attack commenced using ground ladders and 3 inch and three-quarter attack lines.  Initial crews made entry through the garage up the stairs to the first level and were able to perform a primary search before concerns of collapsing roof structure caused evacuation of the building to be ordered. The fire attack attacked at that point became defensive from outside the structure until the fire was knocked down sufficiently for entry to be made.

Extinguishment was completed and overall commenced.  Secondary searches were completed with the structure confirmed to be vacant. The Fire marshal was on scene to commence the investigation. Notification of the Connecticut State Police Fire Investigation Unit was made and also arrived to investigate. There were no fire personnel injuries with one occupant displaced.

Fire suppression activities utilized approximate 35 firefighters and two Chiefs vehicles, a rescue company, 4 engine companies, 2 ladder companies, and mutual aid tankers from New Canaan and Darien.   The fire investigation continues at this time.
