West Haven 3rd alarm apartment fire 175 Canton St.
11/19/18 West Haven, CT – For the second day in a row West Haven firefighters fought a multi-alarm apartment fire. This fire was called in at 10:30 a.m. reporting a fire on the third floor of the complex, in the Allingtown section of the city. Companies reported they could see it coming into the box. Once on scene, firefighters were faced with an advanced fire in an apartment located on the third floor of a large OMD. An attempt to stretch off the standpipe was negated by an inoperable standpipe. Firefighters were forced to back out to the stairwell due to the delay in water. A second alarm was transmitted as additional resources stretched lines into the complex. Firefighters were then hampered by Colliers Mansion conditions in the fire unit. Truck companies conducted searches and reported three roofs built-up during topside ventilation. The fire took about a half hour to knock down after the obstacles were overcome. All occupants were accounted for, though several received smoke inhalation while evacuating. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
