Olive St. 2nd Alarm Fire (Bridgeport, CT) 5/30/21 
BRIDGEPORT, CT – Shortly before 6:30pm on May 30, 2021, the Bridgeport Fire Department received multiple calls for a fire at 370 Olive St.  First companies on scene found a large, 4-story, wood-frame residence with heavy fire showing on all four floors at the rear porches.  A second alarm was immediately called.  After an aggressive offensive attack, members were eventually pulled from the structure as the fire took hold of the attic and operations turned defensive.  In all, eight families were displaced, but there were no reported injuries at the time of this writing.
