NORWALK, CT - On January 8th, Norwalk Fire responded to a house fire at 11:59 A.M. at 2 Betmarlea Road.

The first company on scene reported fire showing through the roof. The fire spread above the garage and into the first floor living room and kitchen. There was no one home at the time of the fire.

The house was gutted and posted unfit for occupancy, displacing a family of four. Firefighters extinguished the fire in approximately 30 minutes. Five Norwalk engines, two truck companies, a rescue and a command car were on scene with surrounding towns covering our stations.

There were some difficulties fighting the fire because of the long distance from the hydrant to the fire. At one point a car had run over our supply line, bursting the line and causing a delay in water supply. No injuries were reported and the fire is still under investigation.
