Fire damages Stamford dentist’s office
STAMFORD — A Friday afternoon fire damaged a dental office on Hoyt Street, according to Capt. Philip Hayes.
At 1:21 p.m., Stamford firefighters were dispatched to a report of “something on fire in the building,” he said.
“Engine 5 and Rescue 1 from the Woodside firehouse arrived on scene in under four minutes to find smoke showing from the rear of the building on the first floor,” Hayes said in a statement.
“A hose line was stretched and extinguished a fire that originated in a kitchen break room located in a dentist office on the first floor. Additional fire units advanced a second hose line to the second floor, inspected for fire extension, and ventilated smoke from the second floor and attic space,” Hayes said.
“Smoke and fire damage was contained to the room of fire origin, and two adjacent examination rooms,” Hayes said.
There were no civilian or firefighter injuries.
The first-alarm fire response consisted of four engine companies, one truck company, one rescue company, a deputy chief and a safety officer for a total of 27 firefighters.
The fire was declared under control in 20 minutes.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Stamford Fire Marshal’s Office.
