Firefighters responded to a structure fire at a home at 73 Hoyclo Road in North Stamford late Friday morning. No injuries were reported.
According to Deputy Fire Chief Tim Conroy of , the call came in at 11:43 a.m. from the owner of the home who reported smoke inside of a bedroom on the second floor. About 30 firefighters from Stamford Fire & Rescue, , and responded within three minutes and were able to extinguish the fire quickly.
"The owner told us that he heard a pop and then saw some smoke," Conroy told Patch.
Conroy said that the smoke appeared to be concentrated to the closet of the bedroom, but eventually spread out through the walls and to the rest of the bedroom. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Turn of River Fire Marshal's office.
Owner Robert Bromley, who inherited the home from his mother, had been living there with a roommate who occupied the damaged bedroom. The roommate, however, wasn't at home during the fire.
"I was in my bedroom at the time [when I heard the pop], but I didn't smell any smoke until I opened the door of his bedroom," Bromley told Patch. "I fooled around with the circuit breaker, but the lights stayed on in that room, while the rest of the lights on the floor turned off."
Bromley, who is retired, said that he thinks the fire might due to an electrical problem, but told Patch that he hadn't had any electrical issues in the home beforehand.
The home, which has a sign on the front in gold letters reading "Bromley Hall," was purchased by Bromley's mother 50 years ago, he told Patch.
