The Norwalk Fire Department responded to a structure fire at 9 Sheridan St. just before 2:30 Friday morning.  Norwalk combined dispatch received the call at 2:25 the first fire unit was on scene at 2:29 and found heavy fire that was visible from the front of the house and multiply cars that were parked next to the house were starting to ignite.  The fire appeared to have started in the basement of a two family home and extended into the first and second floor of the structure.  Icy conditions and a live power line that fell from the home hampered the efforts of the firefighters.  Firefighters quickly advanced on the fire and confined it to the left side of the duplex however the other side did sustain heavy smoke and water damage.   The fire was declared under control by 3:36am  and firefighters were still on scene as of 6am ensuring the fire didn’t reignite and to assist the Fire Marshals division in determining the cause of the blaze.

Thirty three firefighters responded to the fire on five engines, two trucks a rescue and the command car.  Westport and Wilton Fire departments sent vehicle to cover the empty stations in Norwalk in case any other calls came in during the incident.   No injuries were reported by the occupants or any fire fighters. 

The home has been posted unfit for occupancy, as the gas and electric utilities were disconnected due to fire damage. The Red Cross was called into assist 4 occupants from one side of the house with temporary relocation, the other occupants will be staying with family at this time. 

Fire Inspector Kirk McDonald is investigating the cause of the blaze.
