STRATFORD -

A fire this morning in Stratford caused serious damage to a home on North Peters Lane.

It happened just before 7:30 a.m.

The attached garage on the single-family home, along with two cars, were completely destroyed.

"The homeowner was already at work so luckily there was nobody inside,” says Deputy Chief John Godfrey. “Chief MgGrath, who's the chief of the department, rescued two dogs out of the lower area of the house."

Stratford firefighters had to call in responders from Shelton and Bridgeport to assist.
