Firefighters contain New London blaze to oven

New London — Firefighters on Thursday contained a blaze at 269 Vauxhall St. to the oven where it started, Fire Inspector David Heiney said Friday.

Heiney said the 6:45 p.m. fire filled the multifamily home with black smoke and temporarily displaced its residents.

No one was injured in the fire, the cause of which remains under investigation.

“They basically did everything right,” Heiney said of the residents, who recently had moved in. “This wasn’t an unattended cooking fire. They had working smoke alarms.”

New London Property Group Trust owns the two-story home, which has four bedrooms and 2,511 square feet of living space.
