Norwalk Fire Department

Press Release

November 14, 2018

The Norwalk Fire Department responded to fire Wednesday evening, just after 6:30pm, at 61 Rampart Road. The fire was located in the ceiling and the inaccessible attic space, of a two bedroom addition, to the single story ranch style home.

The husband, wife and their 2 children evacuated the home when they smelled smoke and called 911. The husband then went back in to attempt to put out the fire with a garden hose before firefighters arrived, but had to leave as the smoke charged the attic space and started to fill the house. Firefighters had to pull down the bedroom ceiling and vent the roof to extinguish the flames, which engulfed the attic space.

Heat, smoke and water damage was confined to the 2 bedroom addition and the family made arrangements to stay with friends until repairs could be made. Fire Inspector Luca Feola, was investigating the cause of the fire. 25 firefighters responded to the scene with, 3 Engines, 2 Trucks a Rescue and Command Car.
