According to Bethel Fire Chief, Scott Murphy via, the fire that started on the second floor of a building with both residential apartments and businesses took around three hours to get completely under control.

Even though the fire was already blazing out of the building’s windows by the time firefighters arrived, Fire Chief Murphy told that the the blaze barely spread to the second building.

Two of the firefighters had to be taken to Danbury hospital with some minor injuries, and the eight families (10 adults,5 children) have been put up in motels by the Red Cross.

WTNH television anchor, Ann Nyberg, posted photos and a video of the devastating damage that was done to the building, including information about Hannah Perry and her Giggling Pig art studio, and how you can help:

The investigation into what caused the blaze will continue, however Murphy says there is currently no evidence of arson.

A social media post from the Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Department says that Greenwood Ave. is currently open, but asks that drivers use caution.
