Norwalk house gutted by weekend fire

Norwalk Hour Staff Report

A house off West Cedar Street is being called a total loss after a fire devastated the residential wood structure late Saturday. The house at 3 Technology Place -- just behind Swanky Franks on Connecticut Avenue -- was vacant at the time of the fire, which began at 8:22 p.m. Assistant Fire Chief Larry Reilly said that, according to the landlord, two men who lived in the small, two-story, stand-alone, wood-frame house were not home at the time of the fire, which did not spread to any other structures. Fire Marshal Glenn Iannacone said one of the residents apparently had left the house at about 7 p.m., and had left bags packed for a Christmas trip to Mexico that was supposed to begin Sunday. Those bags were destroyed in the fire, which "appears to have its point of origin" in the front bedroom, either on the first or second floor, depending on how someone approaches the house, Iannacone said. "At this point the cause of the fire is undetermined," Iannacone said. "The bulk of the damage is to that bedroom in front, and it has been posted (Sunday) as unfit for occupancy. The investigation will continue." Iannacone added that the "structure can be repaired" but beyond the gutted bedroom, the rest of the house suffered "severe smoke and water damage."  Reilly said 28 firefighters on four engines, two trucks and a rescue vehicle responded to the blaze, which was visible on the hillside overlooking Connecticut Avenue, and that all units -- aside from fire investigators -- cleared the scene within two hours. Both Reilly and Iannacone confirmed that there were no injuries to firefighters or civilians.
