1:44am–#Bridgeport heavy fire to two houses 41 and 51 Lee Avenue. Firefighters quickly had 51 Lee Avenue under control but firefighters could not make entry to 41 Lee Avenue due to heavy fire in the stairwell. After a short time the fire was so heavy in 41 the evacuation tones were sounded and the firefighters were ordered out of the building and fought the flames from the exterior. Within the hour the fire was under control. Firefighters from surrounding towns provided mutual aid to cover the empty firehouses. As of 2:40am there were no reported injuries.

I will have a full video report Saturday evening but you can see the fire on my Facebook Livestream here: https://www.facebook.com/DoingItLocal/videos/10155087487687169/
