BRIDGEPORT (Conn. Post) -- What began as a string of Christmas Eve arsons in the Hollow turned into a homicide investigation after firefighters found the body of a man inside a burning home on Madison Court.
Firefighters found the body in a second-floor apartment while battling the blaze, which began just after 3 p.m. in 6 Madison Court.
The 2 1/2-story home is on a small side street off Madison Avenue, near its intersection with North Avenue and Grand Street.
The stubborn blaze was still burning at 6:15 p.m. Monday, prohibiting arson investigators and police detectives from entering the building and American Medical Response technicians from removing the body. A gurney was readied outside the home.
