Pre-arrival video posted by firstduefirephotos of a house fire Saturday afternoon on North State Street in Ansonia, Connecticut. No injuries were reported. The Valley Independent Sentinel reports Webster Hose Hook and Ladder and Eagle Hose Hook and Ladder were on the scene:
Assistant Chief Edward Adamowski said Monday he was the first to arrive at the house — at 86 North State St. — and found “heavy fire” showing from the right side of the house facing the street.
“I got out of my truck and went down to the residents there, and they were still unsure whether if there was anybody left inside the residence,” Adamowski said.
He then went into the second floor of the house to search for occupants, but could only remain inside for about 30 seconds due to the “intense fire and heat” before leaving the home and finding the resident thought missing in the home’s backyard.
By that time, other firefighters were arriving, and were able to knock down the fire within “five to seven minutes,” Adamowski said.
“We lucked out, the hydrant was actually right in front of the house,” Adamowski said.
“They made a very quick knockdown on the fire,” he said of the firefighters that responded to the blaze. “I’m very proud of my guys, they did a tremendous job.”
