Westport firefighters today assisted the Wilton Fire Department at a fire in a parking garage.
The mutual aid call came in at 10:07 a.m. for a fire in a three-story parking garage at 50 Danbury Road, according to Assistant Chief Jonathan Gottfried and Lt. Ken Lombardi.
Westport’s Engine Co. 2, led by Lombardi, arrived on the scene and assisted Wilton units in extinguishing two vehicles that were on fire on the garage’s second floor, a news release said.
Multiple vehicles as well as the parking structure sustained smoke damage, fire officials said. There was also possible structural damage to the parking deck in the area of fire origin.
The Westport engine remained on the scene for about 40 minutes. Additional manpower was called to staff Westport units while Engine 2 was in Wilton, the officials said.
