On Monday afternoon Norwalk firefighters responded to a fire at a two-family house on Glasser Street and rescued a dog they found hiding under a bed on the second floor. The family of five was out at the time of fire.
At 2:55 the Norwalk Fire Department responded to a report of a structure fire at 35 Glasser St. Upon arrival the first company found flames coming out of a first floor window on the left side of a duplex. The fire was quickly knocked down, at which time firefighters checked the other areas of the house to ensure the fire did not spread and discovered the pet.
The dog and the owners were reunited and the dog was taken to the vet to be checked out. The dwelling is posted unfit. The Red Cross was called to assist the family in locating a place to stay. No injuries were reported.
Fire Inspector Luca Feola is investigating the cause of the fire.
