NAUGATUCK, Conn. — Multiple fire crews responded to a housing complex fire in Naugatuck Thursday afternoon. 

Naugatuck Fire Chief Ken Hanks said that at 3:30 p.m., a kitchen fire was reported at the Southwood Gardens apartment complex. A nearby fire truck responded in about a minute.

There was a heavy fire showing out the front door and extending up outside the building. Crews knocked down the exterior fire and were able to contain it to just one unit, even though the fire was getting up into the attic.
