They didn't say what caused the fire. It looked like a oil fire. Tons of smoke. I hope they will investigate this.

If you don't have proof of what you are accusing this family of, then you should not post such a comment. Because of you, people may be less willing to help a family in need.

Tom he sold that house over a year ago and the new owners have done the remodeling. He doesnt own it anymore and had nothing to do with the changes. Goes to show how much consideration you have! His house who he put so much into and making it nice burns to the ground and all you can do is make false accusations.Pitifull

It really hurts to see how people can be so inconsiderate and can't even sympathize for someones loss. Please dont post information that is in accurate or not back by facts. Have some respect.

Thank that no one was injured. The reason to investigate is to find the reason why the fire started. Wires, furnace who knows how it started. It looked like the gas station on Main St was on fire, with the amount of smoke. I've had a house fire, it is very emotional thing for me. Anything we can do to prevent it from happening the better. I feel for the family.

Regardless paid/vol. it would have burned down, there were no hydrants in the area. Thats what it comes down to.

Paid or volunteer dept or location of fire hydrants..... I don't think it would of saved the house. I saw the smoke and wondered what as going on...I was on the phone when I saw the smoke. Kudos to the fire dept to keep it from spreading! Any idea how it started?

Really? Been through Bridgeport lately? A paycheck doesn't make a firefighter a professional. Their attitude and desire is what makes the difference. I am not saying that Bridgeport doesn't have professionals on the job; quite the contrary. I know a few of them and they're nothing short of stellar! However, your comment that more losses occur because of volunteer fire departments is not necessarily correct. Volunteer fire departments are like career departments; some good, some bad as with any occupation.
