NORWALK -- A structure fire damaged a 100,000 square-foot building in South Norwalk late Thursday afternoon.

The fire at 4 Taft St., near the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Dr., appears to have started in the area of a plastic storage shed and garbage cans along side a dumpster against the rear of Knock on Wood Antiques, Deputy Chief Edward Prescott said.

"Fortunately for the buildings tenants, the fire was noticed by two of the buildings occupants, Sebastian Kitchen Cabinets and East Coast Irrigation. They called 911 right away and probably helped save the building," Prescott said of the fire called in at 5:55 p.m.

When fire crews came on scene, flames from the outside fire against the back wall had already penetrated into the roof of the structure.

Firefighters pulled up a 15 to 20 foot section of charred decking to extinguish the remaining fire before it spread across the entire roof. No damage was reported to the interior of the work shop, Prescott said.

Three engines, two trucks and a Rescue and Command car were sent to the scene, Prescott said.
