Stores closed due to Saturday morning fire

NORWALK —A Saturday morning fire left two South Norwalk stores closed and at least one damaged with smoke and heat.

The Fire Department received a call around 7:30 a.m. of an alarm sounding at Crossroads Pizza, located at 68 N. Main St. According to Deputy Fire Chief Kenneth Ehlers, the Fire Department responded to the scene with a command car, a rescue truck, two engine companies and a truck company and forced entry into the restaurant.

Finding no fire there, the firefighters forced entry into Banner Wines & Liquor, located next door at 66 N. Main St. They located the fire in the store's basement, which is primarily used for storage. Ehlers said he believed the 16 firefighters on the scene were able to extinguish the fire quickly.

There was heat and smoke damage in the basement and smoke damage throughout the store, said Ehlers.

Saturday afternoon, the management of both establishments were clearing out the damage. Dozens of empty pizza boxes were stacked on tables and chairs that had been brought outside Crossroads Pizza. Cartons of liquor bottles lined the sidewalk.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. Deputy Fire Marshall John McGuirk and a fire inspector were on the scene until about 10:45 a.m., said Ehlers.
