SHELTON — Two separate house fires this week were both caused by hot ashes from discarded cigarettes, according to the fire marshal’s office.
Fire Marshal James Tortora announced the cause of the fires at 60 Perry Ave. and 10-12 Maple St. on Monday. The Perry Avenue fire left three families displaced, while the blaze that gutted the Maple Street home forced two families to be relocated. All families received Red Cross assistance.
