No injuries reported in Monday morning house fire in Windsor
October 23, 2017
Two cats, a dog named Doug and a resident made it out of a house fire safely Monday morning in Windsor.
More than 20 personnel from Windsor Severance Fire Rescue responded to the scene at 11:06 a.m.
The fire appears to have been confined to one room on the upper level of the home in the 10 block of Aspen Lane, according to Todd Vess, battalion chief and spokesperson for WSFR. But, Vess said, smoke caused damage to much of the rest of the building, and its occupants likely will lose much of their clothing and other items within the home.
One person, Doug and two cats were inside when the fire began, Fire Chief Herb Brady said. Doug's fur was a little singed, but the person and cats were unharmed, Brady said. Although the cats escaped safely, their whereabouts were unknown Monday morning.
Firefighters remained on scene for about an hour after they were called.
The Windsor Police Department also responded to the scene and will investigate, but Police Chief Richard Klimek said the department does not suspect foul play at this time.
