Date of Incident: May 3, 2021

Time of Incident: 3:55 p.m.

Location of Incident: Long Hill Ave. Shelton, CT

Nature of Incident: Structure Fire


Just before 4 pm on 5/3/21, the Shelton Fire/Police dispatch received several 911 calls reporting a house on fire on Long Hill Ave. Upon the arrival of the first Shelton Fire unit, the house was found to be well involved in fire. As additional apparatus arrived, it was determined that the fire would be fought from the exterior due to the fully involved home. Several fire hoses were used to control the fire from the exterior. Once the bulk of the fire was extinguished, crews made entry to suppress the remaining fire in the home. Crews also conducted extensive overhaul looking for hidden pockets of fire and smoldering areas. The fire was placed under control within an hour, but crews continued to operate on the scene overhauling.
Approximately 35 Firefighters operated under the Command of Assistant Chief Mike Plavcan. The apparatus on the scene were Engines 2, 32, Truck 3, Ladders 47, 51, Rescue 45, Chief Jones, Deputy Chief Wilson, Assistant Chiefs Wheeler and Verdicchio, Derby Engine 12, Shelton Police, and Echo Hose Ambulance.
The occupants were not home at the time of the fire, and no injuries occurred to any fire personnel. The Fire Marshal’s Officer is actively investigating the cause of the fire.
