Norwalk firefighters squelch house fire

By Steve Kobak
Norwalk Hour Staff Writer

An early morning blaze tore through a Flax Hill Road house Tuesday, leaving a family of four without a home.  The fire began on the first floor of the two-and-a-half story home at 364 Flax Hill Road and quickly extended to the second floor, according to Deputy Chief Steven Shay.  "The mother came downstairs and noticed heavy smoke and got everyone out of the house" said Shay.  Three residents were home when the fire began and no one was injured in the incident.  Firefighters arrived at the home at 7:24 a.m. and the fire was extinguished in a half-hour, Shay said.  "The fire was really going by the time we got there," Shay said.  The house had to be gutted and was deemed uninhabitable, according to Shay.  During the time of the Flax Hill Road fire, city firefighters also had to respond to a small basement fire at 31 Macintosh Road. The Rowayton and Stamford fire departments lent mutual aid to the Norwalk Fire Department.  The Red Cross was onseen to offer assistance to the family but the family said it would stay with relatives, Shay said.

Fire officials are still investigating the cause of the fire.
