165OKHN_McEwanA structure fire was reported to Darien Fire Department at about 2:00 AM Sunday, February 6, 2011.  The fire originated in the second floor of the residence.  The occupants were able to escape the house.

Assistance was immediately requested from Noroton Fire Department for an aerial ladder (while our  new tower ladder is being completed).  Noroton Heights Fire Department was also on scene to help.

This is the fourth structure fire to which the department has responded in a month.  The public is strongly urged to shovel out their two nearest fire hydrants, and to exercise caution on the roads and around home during these times of unusually bad weather.
