STAMFORD, Conn. -- A three-story building on Bedford Street that houses medical offices was badly damaged in a "suspicious" fire, possibly arson, early Tuesday, reported the Stamford Advocate.
A Stamford arson task force and state officials with "an accelerant-sniffing dog" were investigating, Lt. Diedrich Hohn told the Stamford Advocate.
Five fire engines, two ladder trucks and a rescue vehicle were dispatched to the two-alarm fire on Bedford Street, the Advocate reported.
The fire closed Bedford Street for nearly three hours at North Street after it broke out at 5:45 a.m., the story said.
Stamford's Chief Fire Marshal Charles Spaulding "warned against jumping to conclusions" about the cause of the blaze, according to the Stamford Advocate.
