Fire marshal to investigate porch fire

Bridgeport–Shortly before 3pm firefighters were called to 1111 North Avenue for a fire on the 2nd floor. When firefighters arrived they saw flames coming from the right side of the porch. Their concern was the gusty winds that might fan and spread the flames. They quickly got water on the blaze and kept it from spreading. Assistant Fire Chief Dominick Carfi told us they are uncertain what caused the fire and called in the fire marshal to investigate it further. It is speculated a discarded cigarette is to blame.
