Six Displaced In Fire On Mountain Avenue
Published on 12/7/2007


New London — A late Wednesday night fire at 2 Mountain Ave. displaced at least six people from the duplex home.

Battalion Chief Marc A. Melanson said that at 11:47 p.m. firefighters received a report of a structure fire.

When firefighters arrived at the scene, smoke was showing on every floor of the home, Melanson said. Flames were also visible on the right side of the home, he said.

Melanson said that all companies on duty responded to the call. The home, which is on the corner of Mountain Avenue and Hope Street, is in close proximity to other homes. He said because of the high winds, there was an initial concern that the fire could spread.

Power and gas in the unit were also shut down, he said.

“We launched an aggressive interior attack and ventilated the roof,” Melanson said. “The guys did an excellent job in knocking down the fire quickly.”

Melanson said the fire was extinguished about 12:05 a.m. but crews stayed on scene for several hours after doing overhaul work.

No injuries were reported.

Land records show that Mercedes Natividad owns the home. She could not be reached Thursday for comment.

Melanson said the American Red Cross assisted the displaced residents. The Regional Canteen Unit was also on scene. A Lawrence & Memorial paramedic was on standby.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
