STAMFORD - Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia said today that there will not be an investigation into the way volunteer firefighters battled a fire Monday at a Stamford mansion.

Stamford firefighters demanded the probe, saying the assistant chief for the Long Ridge volunteer department called off assistance to the fire before arriving on the scene.

According to the Long Ridge fire chief, his men responded to what they thought was only a chimney fire at a house on Deep Valley Trail Road.

Officials say the firefighters arrived at the house to find that the flames had spread from the chimney and requested the extra help that the department had turned down earlier.

Pavia issued a statement promising a plan to standardize response levels and end fighting between the departments.

Two firefighters were taken to the hospital after battling the blaze and were later released.
