SHELTON, CT - At approximately 3:20 pm on Monday March 28, 2022, Echo Hose Fire Co #1, White Hills Fire Co #5, and Pine Rock Park Fire Co #4 were dispatched to the area of Coram Avenue and Wooster Street for a reported structure fire. Dispatch received several calls reporting smoke from the 3rd floor. First companies arriving on scene found heavy fire showing from a 3rd floor porch in the rear of a 3 1/2 story wood frame multiple dwelling. The corrected address was 60 Perry Avenue. Members quickly stretched hose into the side entrance of the structure to find their way to the 3rd floor. Once on the 3rd floor, firefighters found that the fire on the porch had extended into the living space, knee walls, and up into the attic space. This would cause the fire to escalate to a 2nd alarm before being put under control. Firefighters then worked tirelessly to performing extensive overhaul and searching for hidden fire throughout the structure.

Apparatus on scene included Engine 2, Engine 24, Engine 42, Engine 52, Ladder 51, and Utility 4 from Shelton. Mutual aid members along with Engine 12 responded to the fire scene from Derby. The Red Cross was also called in to relocate all families due to the uninhabitable nature of the home that had received extensive fire and water damage.
