PHOTO: One dog died in a house fire while paramedics and first responders revived two others during a late-morning fire on Quincy Street Monday, Oct. 24. A passerby reported the fire at 639 E. Quincy St. near Ridgeway Drive before 10 a.m. The house is also home to Kuether Services, a lawn care and snow removal business run by Kelly and Kim Kuether. The fire doesn’t appear to be suspicious, New London Fire Capt. Don Conat said. The cause is not determined. No people were home, Conat said. The fire originated in the kitchen and flames were coming out the windows when New London Fire Department arrived, he said. “The kitchen was pretty much burned out,” Conat said. “The rest of the house sustained smoke and heat damage.” New London firefighter Tyler Strey said he entered the home with Fire Lt. Ted Coppersmith to search for people because the 911 caller didn’t know if anyone was inside.
