ANSONIA >> Acting Fire Marshal Darrick Lundeen said Saturday there’s no indication that three significant fires reported in a less-than-24-hour span are connected, including one that displaced several residents and destroyed a residence.

A fourth, minor fire, involving a stove, was also reported Saturday afternoon, City Economic Development Director Sheila O’Malley said.

The first and most serious fire was reported Friday night and affected two homes, leaving one a total loss and the other with significant damage. That fire displaced several people, though Lundeen said he didn’t have exact numbers. Lundeen said the state fire marshal was assisting in the investigation.

The Valley Independent reported 11 people were displaced by the fire, which they reported occurred on the corner of Fourth and Liberty streets. The fire required mutual aid assistance.
