A kitchen fire in Danbury caused extensive damage to a home on Woodbury Drive near Hawley Road. The resident used a garden hose to put out the flames. Danbury Deputy Fire Chief Williams says the homeowner was lucky he didn't suffer more than mild smoke inhalation with the dangerous action. While the damage was kept to the kitchen, it's not recommended action by fire safety experts. The resident was transported to the ER for treatment. The fire marshal is investigating the cause of the blaze.
