Power Restoration May Have Caused New Canaan Fire

NEW CANAAN, Conn. – Restoring the power after a brief outage may have caused a fire two weeks ago that severely damaged a Frogtown Road home in New Canaan.

The power being turned back on in the area is “only a possibility at this time,” Fire Marshal Fred Baker said Thursday. The exact cause of the blaze has not been specifically identified, he said. Baker said foul play is not suspected.

The April 11 fire nearly destroyed the home of David Stoller, director of technology at New Canaan Country School. The home is owned by the private school. Firefighters had to bring in water on tanker trucks because there were no nearby hydrants. Stoller and his family were not at home at the time of fire, and no one was injured.

New Canaan Country School has been collecting donations to assist the Stollers.
