Westport Firefighters Douse Fire Under Walkway

Email Favicon Facebook Favicon LinkedIn Favicon

Westport firefighters quickly doused an early morning fire today under a wooden walkway of a home where garden mulch had recently been applied near wiring for an outdoor lighting fixture.

Assistant Chief Gene Maloney said the homeowner at 11 Bluewater Hill saw smoke coming from the underside of the walkway leading from the driveway to the front entrance and called in the alarm at 4:44 a.m.

Firefighters used a saw to cut away the structure to gain access to burning wood under the walkway.

“The fire appeared to have started on the surface of a wood joist adjacent to outdoor lighting fixture wiring and recently applied garden mulch,” Maloney said.

Firefighters remained on the scene until 5:48 a.m. A mutual aid engine company from Fairfield relocated to Westport fire headquarters while Westport personnel dealt with the Bluewater Hill incident.

The Fire Marshal’s office is investigating, Maloney said.
