WESTPORT, Conn. – A fire that broke out in crawl space below the boiler of a home Tuesday night on Fairfield Avenue in Westport  was quickly extinguished, but the home owners were forced to stay elsewhere for the night, fire officials reported,

Firefighters were called to the home shortly after 10 p.m. Upon arrival, they saw smoke coming from an exterior wall at the front of the home and discovered the fire in the crawl space, Assistant Fire Chief Larry Conklin said.

The fire was quickly doused and damage was minimal, Conklin said. There were no injuries to firefighters or the occupants, but the home owners had to stay elsewhere for the remainder of the night.

The Fairfield Fire Department provided coverage at Westport fire headquarters during the incident.

The cause of the fire still is being investigated by the fire marshal’s office.
