A Danbury official is being credited with helping to put out a fire Friday night. A Jefferson Avenue neighbor knocked on City Health Department Official Joe Mead's door across the street and said there was a fire on the porch. Mead grabbed a bucket of water, filled it from a nearby stream three times and doused the rear of the house where the fire was extending up the back corner. Firefighters then finished the job, keeping the fire contained to the outside porch. The Fire Marshals office is investigating the cause of the fire. No injuries were reported from the scene.
