Man Killed in Ridgefield Fire

A Ridgefield man was killed when fire tore through a home at 13 Hawthorne Hill road Sunday afternoon. His name is not known.

Gusty winds and clutter in the house made it difficult to find the man, fire fighters said. There are also no hydrants in the area, so crews brought in tanker trucks.

Five firefighters were taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation.
