NORWALK, Conn. -- A blaze at a multi-unit three-story house on West Main Street late Sunday displaced several families, according to the Norwalk Fire Department.

Firefighters responded at 7:50 p.m. at 31 W. Main St. after dispatch received numerous calls of visible flames from the roof of the house with residents still inside, Deputy Fire Chief Gino Gatto said.

The first arriving truck company reported heavy smoke from the third floor and requested two additional engines, Gatto said.

Several occupants were assisted out of the six-family residential building while hose lines were put in place, he said.

The fire was located in the attic of the third floor and extinguished, Gatto said.

The American Red Cross was called to relocate some of the families. No injuries were reported.

The blaze is being investigated by the fire marshal’s office.

In all 33 firefighters responded to the scene, and mutual aid was called to cover any additional calls.
