Fire Destroys North Stamford House

A fire tore through a large home in North Stamford early Wednesday, gutting nearly the entire structure.

Firefighters were called to 25 Bittersweet Lane at about 12:30 a.m. after neighbors heard explosions and saw a fireball engulfing the rear of the three level brick home, Stamford Fire Lt. Sean Daly said.

“When we got here there was a wall of fire back here,” Daly said pointing to the rear of the home that opens into a large pond. “There was nothing but fire.”

A retriever woke up homeowners Jeff and Margaret Gray. No one else in the house.
