A fire in a Main Street apartment building in Danbury was quickly brought under control last night. Firefighters responded to the 4-story building around 5:30pm and found fire on the 3rd floor with smoke throughout the building.
A 2nd alarm was struck due to the size of the building and the occupancy. Crews were able to safely extinguish the fire while evacuating occupants.
The fire was found to be in a utility room adjacent to one unit that was unoccupied at the time. Building management and maintenance were on scene and worked with crews to mitigate the damage while the lingering smoke was removed with ventilation fans. The Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause.
There were no injuries reported.
