Ansonia Fire Department

2 Alarm Structure Fire 2 Multi Famiy Dwelings Fourth and Liberty Sts 03/10/17

When Ansonia volunteers were dispatched for a structure fire they were told the police department was taking multiple calld for a fully involved house. The first unit on scene reported heavy fire in a 2.5 story wood frame rapidly spreading to the multi-family next door as the fire was intensified by the heavy winds. Along with mutual aid units from Derby and Seymour fire fighters would spend several hours in the freezing temperatures to finally extinguish the stubborn fire in both structures. Unforunately the homes sustained extensive damage and 20 people required the assistance of the Red Cross to find temporary shelter. In addition several dogs were unaccounted for from the original fire building and assumed to have perished in the fire.
