A fire late Saturday night at 118 Beechwood Drive off of Durham Road just south of Old Toll Road in North Madison resulted in substantial damage to the house.
The damage to the house is so significant it may be a total loss, emergency personnel said.
A homeowner was transported to Yale Hospital-Shoreline after suffering from mild smoke inhalation, emergency personnel said Sunday morning. One firefighter was treated on the scene and released, he said. The homeowner's son, a former North Madison Volunteer Fire Co. member, is coming in today to help, emergency personnel said.
The homeowner said Sunday morning that her daughter will be coming in as well, along with other relatives. Neighbors went with her to the hospital Saturday night and she is staying with neighbors today.
The homeowner also said Sunday morning said one of her cats made it out, but that she is still missing a black cat. So if anyone in that neighborhood sees a stray black cat, please call Madison Animal Control at 203-245-2721 or let us know in the comments.
