Just as the 11pm news was coming on the TV a call for a large fire at the corner Park Avenue and Worth Street glared from the scanner. Fire department had multiple calls coming in. As I sped off to the scene Greg Simeon was springing into action too as he noticed the flames on the third floor. He rushed to the house and began banging on doors alerting sleeping residents of the fire and helping them escape. The hardest for Greg was seeing a mother with her infant child across the room filled with acrid smoke. Greg helped everyone get out. Shortly after the blaze and interview with Greg a call came out over the Bridgeport Police radio of a person shot in the back of 127 Linen Avenue, a few blocks away. Police immediately began investigating if the two calls are connected and by 2:40am had secured a warrant for the home on Park and Worth Street for their investigation. At 2:47am at the time of this report police have begun investigation and the Red Cross remains on scene to help relocate the tenants. We will keep you posted on DoingItLocal.com with updates.
