“Tried to make entry inside the building, it was just unfortunate, too much heavy volume of fire and too much high heat pushed us out,” Ridgefield Fire Department Assistant Chief John Antola said. “Hit it from the outside and tried to go back in.”

When crews finally got the fire under control, they found the remains of a man, identified as 73-year-old Luis Ocha-Sanchez, inside a bedroom. One firefighter was also hurt after slipping on ice.
