NORWALK — A fire Monday morning caused severe damage to a house at 22 Southwind Drive, leaving it uninhabitable.
When firefighters arrived, they found flames pouring out of the windows of a second floor bedroom and through the roof of the single family raised ranch.
Besides charring the walls and furnishings of the bedroom where the fire apparently started, the remainder of the house sustained heavy smoke damage.
The home, owned by Gus and Ann Moore, was unoccupied when the fire occurred. It was reported by a neighbor at 9:54 a.m.
Monday afternoon, Deputy Fire Marshall John F. McGuirk Jr. said the cause of the fire remained under investigation, but it was accidental and not suspicious. He said the origin of the fire may never be determined.
McGuirk said the Moores did not have homeowner's insurance. The city posted the house unfit for occupancy
