The company, a unit of Crabtree & Evelyn Holdings in Britain, said it would continue to operate its stores and would honor gift cards and returns as it reorganizes under bankruptcy protection.

The neighbor called 911 at 6:16 a.m. after smelling smoke at 35C Hiawatha Lane and seeing smoke and flames through a window, said Assistant Chief William Dingee.

First arriving firefighters forced entry into the apartment and shut off the stove while others began a search of the apartment using a thermal imaging camera, he said.

They located the occupant asleep on his bed, removed him from the apartment, and administered oxygen until arrival of Westport EMS, Dingee said. The man was transported to Norwalk Hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation, he said.
