Flames broke through the roof of a Greenfield Hill area residence early Friday morning after what was reported as an electrical fire.

Residents of 61 Twin Lanes Road  called 911 at 1:11 a.m. reported a structure fire.

The first fire units to arrive reported heavy smoke pouring from the attic and launched an interior attack. Assistant Chief Schuyler Sherwood arrived on scene and assumed command.

The homeowner reported that everyone was out of the house, but that there were two cats missing inside. One cat has been found safe, the other remains missing.

All on duty Fairfield Fire Department resources were required to control this fire. Assistance was requested to the scene from Westport and Bridgeport fire departments, American Medical Response and United Illuminating. Mutual aid coverage was also requested from neighboring towns for fire protection in the community.

The fire was placed under control at approximately 2:15 a.m.

No injuries were reported at the scene, firefighters said. Doing It Local reported that a mother and child were taken into the care of EMS to keep warm.

The house suffered extensive damage to the second floor and attic area, according to a release from Sherwood.

Doing It Local is reporting that a circuit tripped, and was reset by the residents. Later the fire was noticed.
