Four adults and a child were displaced when fire tore through a two-family home at 47 Riverside Avenue in Norwalk on Thursday afternoon.
Police said, via Twitter, that the fire has been knocked down, all residents are out of the building and no one was hurt.
However, the house is uninhabitable and crews from the American Red Cross have responded to help.
The road remains closed to traffic between Belden Avenue and New Canaan Avenue. Police urge drivers to use Spring Hill Avenue or the Route 7 Connector instead.
