NORWALK, CT - The Norwalk FD responded to fire in a single-family home at 7 Live Oak Road on the morning of March 28th at 10:00 A.M. A neighbor had called 911, saying there had been a propane tank explosion and that the house was on fire. Upon arrival firefighters found a rear section of the house on fire, but no propane tanks involved, although a gas grill was in the vicinity. Firefighters quickly knocked the flames down, which ran the wall of the homes' addition and into the roof rafters. Firefighters ventilated the home and checked for fire extension while overhauling the fire area. The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire and the residents will be staying with relatives until repairs are made. Three Engines, two Trucks, a Rescue and Command Car responded, with 25 Firefighters. Firefighters cleared the scene at 11:15 A.M. The cause of the fire is under investigation by Fire Inspector Dave Burrows.
