SHELTON — Residents escaped a lightning-caused fire in their Buck Hill Road home, but not before helping dousing a bulk of the blaze, according to fire officials.
Shelton Deputy Fire Chief Paul Wilson said some 20 firefighters from Huntington Co. No. 3, Echo Hose Co. No. 1 and the Pine Rock Co. No. 4 arrived at the structure fire about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday; Company 5 — with its tanker — was dispatched since Buck Hill Road is a non-hydrant area.
