A Danbury resident was hospitalized with burns after a fire on Deer Hill Avenue Wednesday night.  Firefighters responded to the area near Wooster Street shortly before midnight, flagged down by a neighbor.  A second alarm was signaled to bring in additional crews to battle heavy fire conditions on the 3rd and 4th floors of the condo unit.  Fire was also extending into the attic.  The single occupant was able to self-evacuate, but is being evaluated for burns sustained prior to the arrival of the fire department.  The occupant’s pets were located and place under the care of a neighbor.  Unaffected units were able to be re-occupied.  The Red Cross is working with occupants of two units that were untenable. The Fire Marshal’s Office is in the process of investigating the cause of the fire.
