BEACON FALLS — A fire late Tuesday night damaged a two-family home on South Main Street.

Beacon Hose Company No. 1 spokesman Jeremy Rodorigo said the fire took place at 11:30 p.m. at the two-family home located at 95 and 97 South Main St. The fire started in a bedroom at 97 South Main St. and spread throughout both apartments, he said.

Two people were transported to Waterbury Hospital for smoke inhalation, Rodorigo said.

The fire was under control in about 35 minutes, but both apartments had heavy fire, smoke and heat damage, he said.

“As of right now the home is uninhabitable,” Rodorigo said Wednesday morning.

There were two people living at 97 South Main St. and one person living at 95 South Main St., he said. The identities of the individuals were not released.

The fire marshal is still investigating the cause of the fire, Rodorigo said.

Beacon Hose had to call for a ladder truck from the Naugatuck Fire Department to assist with putting out the fire, Rodorigo said.
