WESTPORT — Firefighters doused a deck fire at a Hunting Lane house early Tuesday before it spread to the main dwelling.

“Heavy fire” on the deck at the rear of the house was reported about 12:15 a.m. Tuesday, according to the report by Assistant Fire Chief Jeffrey Gootman.

Four engines, a ladder truck and the shift commander were dispatched to the scene.

The flames were then extinguished quickly before spreading from the deck to the house.

No injuries were reported.

Cause of the fire is being investigated by the Fire Marshal’s Office.
