After Noroton Heights Fire Department put out a house fire at 261 Hollow
Tree Ridge Rd. early Wednesday afternoon, a firefighter was asked why
Darien EMS-Post 53 had arrived at the station house to attend to him.
"What's the matter?" a man asked him, "Smoke inhalation?"
"No," the young man said. "I fell through the floor."
He felt fine and -- to look at him -- seemed fine, but department officers suggested he visit Stamford Hospital just to be sure.
fire was reported at 12:40 p.m., according to the Darien Fire Marshal's
office. By 2:30 p.m. it was long since over, and an investigation had
begun into its causes.
The roof of the two-story home was heavily damaged in an area around the chimney.
Patch has left messages with Noroton Heights Fire Chief Ron Riolo and
Fire Marshal Robert Buch asking for more information about the fire.
