The Norwalk Fire Department was busy Thursday afternoon with a fully involved car fire on I-95 northbound between exits 13 and 14 and a structure fire at 47 Riverside Avenue.

The reported car fire came in through State Police at 11:49. The fire appeared to be the result a rear end collision between an SUV and a cargo van. The occupant of the SUV was pulled from the vehicle by other motorists before bursting into flames.

Firefighters attacked the fire from the southbound lanes due to the amount of involvement and state police stopping traffic. The two occupants of the van and the driver of the SUV were transported to Norwalk hospital by Norwalk paramedics and Darien EMS. Their conditions appeared to be non life threatening. Traffic was reduced to one lane northbound and 2 lanes southbound as emergency crews worked the fire and attended to the injured. The highway was fully opened by 12:43.

A Norwalk Police Officer on patrol was flagged down by an occupant of the home and called in the fire at 12:58 pm. Firefighters had heavy fire showing on the side home extending into the 2nd floor bedrooms and the roof eves from the 1st floor living room. Firefighters were initially hampered by a compromised power line burning off the home. The crews had to stretch lines around the home which was elevated 60 feet off the road level. Once the fire was knocked down, fire crews remained on scene till 4 pm ensuring that all the hot spots had been extinguished.

Five of the homes 6 occupants were home at the time of the fire and were able to escape without injury. The home has been posted unfit for occupancy by the Fire Marshal and the cause is under investigation.
