Firefighters quell Pequot Avenue fire


Fairfield Fire Inspector Hank Ference and Fire Marshal Bill Kessler investigate an early morning fire at Sammy’s Southport Pizza & Grill, 295 Pequot Ave.

The Fairfield Fire Department has knocked down the fire reported by passing runners at Sammy’s Southport Pizza & Grill, 295 Pequot Ave., today, April 14, at 5:46 a.m.

All Fairfield fire companies were at the fire along with Westport and Bridgeport units, with Norwalk covering for additional calls.

“An aggressive interior attack by Lt. (Justin) Greenhaw and Engine 4 coupled with backup from Lt. (Brian) McHugh and Company 1 who took the roof and Lt. (Frank) Eannotti with Company 2 stretching additional lines to the rear kept this fire to the room of origin,” said Assistant Chief George Gomola, who was Incident commander. “Early notification by a couple of Good Samaritans made it possible for us to limit spread and avoid injuries, though as with any fire the adjoining occupancies suffered some damage.”

At this time the fire remains under investigation by Fire Marshal Bill Kessler.
