CROMWELL - Three people and three dogs escaped a fire in Cromwell Monday morning.

Cromwell Fire Department Deputy Chief Michael Salonia said the call came in to the department at around 2 a.m.

Deputy Chief Salonia told Fox 61 a passerby who noticed the fire at 597 Main Street was able to alert everyone inside, before calling 911.  The Good Samaritan's quick action helped make sure everyone inside made it out safely.

Fox 61 also spoke to the father of the homeowners who, said his daughter and her husband left for their honeymoon over the weekend.  The three people who escaped the fire were family members watching the home and the couple's dogs while they were away.  The honeymooners told their parents they are grateful and relieved no one was hurt.

“We’ve been talking back and forth, we’ve been facetiming. She is relieved that no one is hurt and everybody is fine, and she’s so excited I was able to show her facetime pictures of her dogs and she got to talk to the dogs and the dogs are all calm and happy now,” Marc Kunkel, father of the homeowners, told Fox 61.

Fire officials said the fire was concentrated on the front porch, but  there is water and smoke damage to the first floor.

The cause of the fire is being investigated by Cromwell Fire Marshal services.
