One dead in Prospect structure fire

PROSPECT — State police and the Prospect Volunteer Fire Department reported one death in a Wednesday-morning structure fire at a 62 Summit Road home. The victim’s identity has not yet been released, and the cause of the blaze is still pending investigation from the Connecticut State Police and Fire Marshal. Prospect Mayor and Assistant Fire Chief Bob Chatfield said the call came in at 7:11, and firefighters were on the scene at 7:12. When they arrived, he said, smoke was seeping from windows, doors, and through shingles on the roof; it wasn’t until a window gave and the flame was thus oxygenated that it really erupted. About fifty Prospect firefighters battled the inferno, many of them new members for whom this was their first major call. All told, Fire Chief Marty Lautenschlager said, it took them about 45 minutes to extinguish the fire, and no one was injured.
