Fire at 54 Charter Ridge Drive
Sat. Dec 29th 2012

Sandy Hook and Botsford Fire firefighters were dispatched to an appliance fire just before 2:30 pm on a snowy Saturday afternoon. While en route to the scene a town public works employee plowing in the area came over the radio and advised that smoke was showing from the upstairs window of the dwelling. 

Sandy Hook Assistant Chief Anthony Capozziello arrived on scene confirmed a structure fire and assumed command. Engineer Steve Stohl backed the Quint up the driveway and a 2 1/2" line was pulled to the front door of the residence and up the stairs to the second floor bathroom where the dryer was on fire. 

Engine 441 was next on scene and dropped the 5" line up the driveway.  The fire was knocked down very quickly. The attic was checked for extension and the house was vented.

The second floor sustained smoke and water damage. Less than 500 gallons of water was used. 

Newtown Hook & Ladder, Hawleyville FD, Dodgingtown FD, Stevenson FD, Monroe FD and Southbury were also called in for assistance (tankers, RIT and covering stations).
