Date of Incident: April 4, 2021

Time of Incident: 10:52 am

Location of Incident: 350 Green Rock

Nature of Incident: Structure Fire

Just before 11 am on 4/4/21, the Shelton Fire/Police Dispatch Center received a can reporting a basement fire on Green Rock. Huntington Fire Co. 3, Echo Hose Hook & Ladder Co.1, and White Hills Fire Co. 5 were dispatched. Upon the arrival of Deputy Chief Wilson, a significant smoke condition was observed from the front door and eves of the home. Both occupants had exited the home without assistance. Upon the arrival of E32, an attack hose line was brought around to the back of the house, and members made entry to the walk-out basement from there. Crews found a large volume of fire in the mechanical room with a significant extension of fire in the ceiling. An additional attack hose line was placed in service on the first floor as additional units arrived. There was no fire extension to the 1st or 2nd floors; however, a significant amount of heat and smoke was found in these locations. Approximately 30 Firefighters under the Command of Assistant Chief Mike Plavcan operated at the scene that was brought under control within 20 minutes. Members operated on the scene for some time, checking for hotspots and ventilating the smoke from home. Engines 32, 52, 2, 42 Squad 1, Truck 3, Ladders 51 and 47 Rescue 30 Cars 2, 4, 5, and 6 operated on the scene along with assistance from the Stratford Fire Department. Monroe, Derby, and Nichols FD provided station coverages as crews worked the fire scene. No fire personnel was injured during operations. However, the homeowner suffered a minor burn to his hand while attempting to extinguish the fire. The home is not habitable, and the Fire Marshal’s Office is working on the cause of the fire. Special thank you to the Echo Hose Ambulance for providing EMS standby throughout the duration of the incident.
