A Naugatuck family was displaced from their home Sunday night after a fire destroyed the inside of their house on Beecher Street.

Firefighters responded to 19 Beecher St. shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday for reports of a working fire. Emergency responders arriving on scene found a heavy fire in progress inside the home.

No injures were reported in the blaze.

Roads in the surrounding area were blocked off while emergency crews stamped out the last of the flames.

Sandra, sorry I did not respond yesterday, I only saw your post this morning. Call to FD received at 6:45:59 PM and lasted 26 seconds, both stations dispatched at 6:46:25, first FD truck signed on as responding at 6:48:07, and on scene at 6:50:27 Total time from the dispatcher picking up the phone to the first crew on scene was 4 minutes and 28 seconds, of which 2 minutes and 20 seconds consisted of travel time. PD typically arrives at fires first because they are already on the road and may be in the area of the fire when dispatched. Please contact me at 203-720-7081 or khanks@naugatuck-ct.gov if I can answer any other questions on Naugatuck Fire Department operations.

Thanks, Ken Hanks. I guess when you are watching someone's home burn down, 4 1/2 minutes seems so much longer. It is frightening to see what can happen to a home in such a short amount of time. Thanks for the clarification and keep up the good work!
