The fire was reported at 5:40 p.m. when flames were in a wall around the fireplace and then the attic, according to Assistant Chief Brian Meadows.

Firefighters stretched hoselines to attack flames in the wall and the attic, he said, while others opened the roof for ventilation.

All occupants, who initially tried to extinguish the fire themselves, evacuated safely, he said. The Red Cross was summoned to provide temporary shelter.

Mutual aid from Wilton and Norwalk assisted Westport at the scene while Fairfield covered the town from fire headquarters, Meadows said.

The Fire Marshal’s Office was investigating cause of the blaze, which started in the area around the fireplace, he said.
