Firefighters from New Canaan and surrounding towns responded on Friday afternoon to a three-alarm fire at a Father Peter’s Lane home, officials said.
The call of a structure fire at the 2003-built home at 23 Father Peter’s Lane came in at about 3:15 p.m., and arriving units found a fire in the roof of the single-family dwelling, according to Fire Marshal Fred Baker.
A second alarm brought mutual aid from companies in Vista and Pound Ridge, N.Y. as well as Norwalk, Stamford and Wilton, Baker said in a press release.
As the fire moved toward the attic, a third alarm was called at 3:34 p.m. which brought in additional companies from South Salem, N.Y., Noroton Heights, Georgetown and Ridgefield, Baker said.
The fire was declared under control at 5:30 p.m.
No one was injured, though the home’s occupants were in the residence at the time the fire started, Baker said.
Its cause appears to have been accidental, he said.
New Canaan EMS helped with rehabilitation for firefighters and the New Canaan Police Department assisted with traffic control, Baker said.
