UPDATE Westport firefighters get water on a house fire at 10 Pond Edge Road today. A health care worker helped two elderly disabled residents flee the house, said Assistant Chief Larry Conklin. They were in bed when the aide helped them out, said neighbor Leslie Wolf, who took the trio into her residence. They were not injured, but one firefighter suffered injuries and was taken to Norwalk Hospital for evaluation, said Conklin. Flames were shooting from the right and rear of the structure, he said, and the fire in the garage area was challenging due to the presence of flammable liquids. He said chemical extinguishers in conjunction with hose lines had to be used to extinguish the fire. The fire spread quickly to the outside of the residence, but fire damage to the interior upper floors was held to a minimum, Conklin said. Contributed photo
