TRUMBULL - Firefighters extinguished a blaze at 23 Heavenly Lane on Saturday morning.
When firefighters arrived around 11:15 a.m. they saw smoke showing from the rear of the two and one-half story house. The fire was beneath a three-season porch of the 5,174-square foot Colonial house.
Smoke conditions were reported on the first and second floor of the nine-room house. Fans were brought in to ventilate the structure.
Firefighters are removing the siding near the location of the fire to determine it has not spread into a crawl space.
The bulk of the fire was knocked down within 15 minutes.
Dispatch reports say a 37-year-old man, who resides in the house, complained of smoke inhalation.
At around noon, the scene was declared under control
