ONE SENT TO HOS­PI­TAL IN NEW LON­DON FIRE

The Day - - DAILY BRIEFING -

New Lon­don — Crews took one per­son to the hos­pi­tal for smoke in­hala­tion af­ter a blaze broke out in the sec­ond floor of a Cut­ler Street res­i­dence Mon­day, fire Chief Henry Kydd said.

Kydd said the call came in through a Life Alert sys­tem about 12:20 p.m. Be­cause there's a Cut­ler Street in both Gro­ton and New Lon­don, crews from each town re­sponded to their re­spec­tive Cut­ler streets.

New Lon­don fire­fight­ers quickly lo­cated flames on the sec­ond floor of 5 Cut­ler St., which is the left half of a du­plex. Kydd said the flames were in a front bed­room and didn't spread be­yond there.

He de­scribed the vic­tim as an el­derly woman.

Records show the prop­erty be­longs to Lester and Mary Gee.

The cause of the fire isn't yet known, but Kydd said he didn't ex­pect it would take long to fig­ure out. It isn't con­sid­ered sus­pi­cious, he said.
