5/14/2022 7 Nelson Ave Structure Fire
Updated On: May 14, 2022


A house fire at 7 Nelson Ave. was reported to  Norwalk Fire Dispatch at 4:58 a.m. First companies arrived on the scene minutes later and found heavy fire on the front of the house, a burning power line down across the street, and two vehicles burning in the driveway. A man and woman who had escaped the fire with their nine year-old son were in the backyard, attempting to rescue their seven year-old daughter, who was asleep in a second floor bedroom. The man had broken his arm and suffered burns when he fell while trying to climb to the window. Firefighters immediately raised a ladder to the window. One firefighter climbed inside the burning room, located the child, and passed her out the window to firefighters on the ladder, who carried her to the ground. Norwalk Paramedics immediately began care and transported the child to Norwalk Hospital. It was later reported that she succumbed to her injuries. The other family members are being treated at Norwalk Hospital for smoke inhalation, minor burns, and injuries.

The fire escalated to 3 alarms, with all Norwalk fire companies working on scene and mutual aid station coverage provided by Stamford, New Canaan, Westport, and Rowayton fire departments. One Norwalk firefighter suffered burns to his face and was treated on the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Norwalk Fire Marshal Division and the CT State Police.
