NORWALK, Conn. – Four Norwalk residents were displaced but not injured after an early-morning house fire on Sheridan Street on Friday, fire officials said.

The Norwalk Fire Department received a report of a structure fire on Sheridan Street at about 2:30 a.m. Friday. When firefighters arrived, the blaze had already spread to the two floors of the house and had begun to ignite the cars parked in the driveway, Deputy Fire Chief Chris King said.

A downed power line also created problems for firefighters at the scene, but the blaze was under control by 3:30 a.m., King said. Firefighters stayed on the scene until 6 a.m. to make sure the fire did not reignite.

No injuries were reported in the incident. But the house was declared unfit for occupancy due to heavy fire damage and disconnected utilities. The American Red Cross arranged for accommodations for the four occupants of the home, King said.

Firefighters believe the fire started in the house’s basement, King added. The Norwalk Fire Marshal’s Office was still investigating the cause of the blaze.

It was eight people not four. Two families. You can donate on gofundme to the Lockwood family and Avalos family. Thank you.

The wife said around 6 tonight the fund was growing for the family its called go fund me .com i didn't realize it until now that both families are friends with the wife and the kids needless to say smoke alarms and the programs need a boost in Norwalk.

The pet was a westie and it did pass away... I feel bad for there loss.

The Hour reported a dog died but now say the dog is missing but no description the usual in depth reporting they are known to have.Anyone know what kind of dog we should be looking for?

All untethered or unleashed.

Hope the the people are doing ok,maybe its a good time to remind everyone to check your smoke alarms and get some if you don't have any at all.
