Norwalk house fire reignites hours after being put out

Posted: Updated:

Norwalk firefighters were called back to the scene of a garage fire Wednesday after flames reignited hours after being put out.

The garage caught fire at 4 Bayberry Lane Tuesday and spread to the house, officials say.

The fire reignited Wednesday around 6:30 a.m. after firefighters received several calls.

The Norwalk Fire Department says they responded to Tuesday's first fire in the garage at 3:46 p.m.

When firefighters arrived, the garage was fully engulfed in fire.

The homeowner says she started her lawnmower inside the garage before hearing a loud pop.

Firefighters say an electrical line also made it difficult to put the fire out.

The fire was brought under control in 20 minutes.

Firefighters rescued three cats from inside of the home, which is attached to the garage. The cats were taken to a veterinarian to be checked out.

A Toyota Highlander that was inside of the garage sustained damage.

The fire ripped through the roof of the home and heavy smoke and flames were visible.  A bedroom floor collapsed and the ceiling of the garage also caved in.

There is no word on what caused the second round of flames.
