Updated On: Jan 21, 2021

Wednesday September 2nd at 2pm the Norwalk Fire Department responded to a fire in a vacant house on Strawberry Hill Ave. First reports were large amounts of gray smoke coming from a house. Upon arrival a well involved fire was found in the basement and indications of fire in many other parts of the structure. The first and second floor windows and doors were boarded shut due to a previous fire in the structure. The initial fire attack was a defensive strategy extinguishing the fire from the exterior. The fire extended through the interior of the structure because of the holes from the previous fire and into the many void areas. These conditions made extinguishment extremely difficult. At this time the tactics were changed to two large caliber water streams to force water into void areas. The fire was declared under control in about 1 hour but crews remained on scene for several hours extinguishing hot spots.

25 firefighters operated on scene. The cause of the fire in under investigation. One firefighter was treated on scene for dehydration. 

Respectfully,

DC Albe Bassett
