STAMFORD – Stamford firefighters responded to a one-alarm fire in an occupied multiple family dwelling at 106 West Broad Street, early this morning. Arriving units found a heavy smoke condition in the rear of the structure originating from the basement.

The rescue company performed a primary search of the structure and found no trapped occupants.

Firefighters from the first due engine company stretched a hose line to a basement apartment bedroom and quickly extinguished the visible fire in a wall of the apartment. Additional crews worked for an additional hour overhauling the involved area, extinguishing several hot spots.

West Broad Street was briefly closed down due to water supply lines in the street.

There were no injuries reported. The Red Cross was requested to the scene to help with four adults and two children who were displaced as a result of the fire.

The Fire Marshal’s Office is currently investigating the cause of the fire.

Four engine companies, a truck company, a rescue company, a Rapid Intervention Team (RIT), a Safety Officer and an Incident Commander from the Stamford Fire Department responded to the scene. Stamford EMS and Stamford Police were also on the scene providing services.
