Stonington fire leaves two injured

Mystic - Two people were taken to the hospital from the scene of a fire at 10 Meadowbrook Lane late Wednesday night, according to Stonington Police Chief J. Darren Stewart.

The fire was not under control as of 11:45 p.m.

Stewart said police officers have responded to Lawrence + Memorial Hospital to collect information and continue their investigation. Police detectives and the town fire marshal are also at the scene.

A neighbor who lives across the street said he saw a man - a resident of the burning house - unconscious on the lawn. He was taken away by ambulance, the witness said.

The neighbor also said a couple lives upstairs in the two-family home, and a woman lives downstairs. The man from upstairs was the one lying on the lawn, he said.

The call was reported about 10:50 p.m.
