Stamford family displaced after fire destroys home

Stamford fire officials said a weekend fire that displaced homeowners and killed a family pet started in a garage.



The fire happened on Deepwood Road in North Stamford over the weekend. Crews responded to the house Saturday around 7:30 p.m., and the homeowners weren't home at the time. Officials say the family's cat was home and died in the flames. 



The house is covered by a tarp and was declared unsafe to live in by fire officials. 



The fire marshal is still investigating the cause of the fire.



The community has started a GoFundMe account to help out the homeowners.
