MONROE, Conn. — Wednesday, April 19, marked a busy afternoon for firefighters from the Monroe Volunteer Fire Department, the Stepney Fire Department and Stevenson Volunteer Fire Company. 

Firefighters responded to four alarms in three hours, according to a Facebook post. 

"It all started with a reported structure fire on Blue Hills Road" at 3:25 p.m., where units found a working basement fire. 

White Hills Fire Company from Shelton, Huntington Fire Co. 3, Monroe Police Department and Monroe Volunteer Emergency Medical Service were also on the scene. 

The Monroe fire marshal is investigating the fire.
