POMFRET, CT - At 5:37 P.M. on Sunday, October 29th, the Pomfret Fire Department was dispatched to 152 Quasset Road for a fire alarm. Car 870 arrived and said he was investigating a smoke condition on the second-floor. Engine 270 arrived at 5:53 P.M. and went inside to help him.

Car 170 transmitted the working fire and requested the first-alarm at 6:18 P.M., so Putnam, East Putnam, Attawaugan, Mortlake, Williamsville and KB Ambulance were added. The crew from ET 270 stretched a one-and-three-quarter-inch hose line through the front door up to the second-floor. Putnam Ladder 178 flew their stick to the roofline on the 'Bravo' side and used a chainsaw to cut the wall open. Crews handjacked supply line down the driveway to ET 170 where Tanker 162 was nursing them.

Car 70 had command and reported the fire knocked down at 7:22 P.M. The Pomfret Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating.
