STAMFORD — A two-car garage attached to a North Stamford home was left in unstable condition after a vehicle slammed into it Sunday afternoon, fire officials said Monday.
Firefighters were called to the residential home on Lynam Road at 4:40 p.m. Sunday after the crash occurred, Deputy Fire Chief Matt Palmer said in a statement.
Upon arrival, firefighters found a significant amount of damage to the area around the home and began efforts to stabilize the garage, Palmer said.
When Rescue Company 1 arrived at the home, they used specialized struts to prevent the roof of the garage from falling in, he said. Then they used a grip-hoist device to pull the Audi passenger vehicle out of the garage area, Palmer said.
Because of the extensive amount of damage, they called the Stamford Building Department to inspect the structure to asses it for safety problems, he said.
There were no injuries reported to the driver or the occupants of the home in the accident, the statement said.
Stamford police were investigating the cause of the accident Sunday afternoon.
