New Haven 2nd alarm 52 Ann St. dwelling fire.
05/13/23 New Haven, CT – Firefighters from the Hill section were met with a heavy smoke condition emanating from a two and a half story, private dwelling. Lines were quickly stretched, but firefighters were met with heavy heat and clutter conditions. They were unable to make any forward progress and reach the seat of the fire. The fire soon vented the basement windows and started to reach an auto and the first floor. Companies were briefly backed out so the fire could be darkened down from the outside. Additional lines were stretched to all floors as the fire began to extend due to the construction of the dwelling, and a second alarm was transmitted. Firefighters were able to transition back to the interior and open up to stop any further spread. It took about an hour to bring the fire under control. No one was injured. The cause is being investigated.
