1984-08-08: Gallagher’s Funeral Home Suffers 2-Alarm Fire at 20 Suburban Ave

Employees had to drag scorched drapery and carried singed flower baskets from the charred interior of the Leo P Gallagher funeral home, following a two-alarm fire that caused considerable damage.

Officials said they suspected that the building had been broken into before the blaze was discovered.

Twenty-five Stamford Fire fighters battled the fire for two hours after it broke out at 3:39 AM on the first floor of the brick and wood in building at 20 Suburban Avenue.

There were no serious injuries but one firefighter was transported to the hospital for heat exhaustion.
