NORWALK, Conn. — Nine Norwalkers escaped a house fire Tuesday evening without injury, the Norwalk Fire Department said.

The fire at 43 Lexington Ave. was reported at 10:11 p.m., Deputy Chief Steven Shay said. The fire started in the bedroom of a multi-family home and quickly spread to floors above.

Although the occupants escaped, all of their belongings were destroyed and the house was gutted and posted unfit for occupancy, he said. The Red Cross responded and provided temporary shelter.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

I pastored the Hungarian reformed church for eight years on Lexington Avenue up until December 2020 and we had several fires in the neighborhood. More needs to be done prevention to assist people with older homes to bring them up to code especially with all the poor and illegal immigrants that are most likely living in these homes😩🙏🏼
