“Moderate” Damage From Fire To Naugatuck Home

A fire in Naugatuck has displaced several residents.

The fire broke out in a multi-family home around 6:30 Sunday evening on Terrace Avenue.  Firefighters from Waterbury were called in to help battle the blaze, which started in the rear of a first floor unit.

Several people had to be rescued, including one who was outside perched on an air conditioning unit, according to a fire official.  One resident was treated for smoke inhalation.  In addition, a firefighter was taken to the hospital for evaluation and later released.

Right now, there’s no word on a cause.  Firefighters say one challenge to fighting the fire was that the structure had a lone stairwell leading to the units.

Three of those displaced are being assisted by the Connecticut Red Cross.

The house sustained moderate damage, according to fire officials.
