The fire earlier today on Linda Anne Drive in Milford apparently was confined to the kitchen, and despite earlier indications, there were no serious injuries.

Holliston, MA resident William Kenney, 18, probably thought visiting his girlfriend at Fairfield University over the weekend would be a fun time.
He thought wrong. First, on Saturday, Kenney is busted for pot possession when college security said they found the illegal weed in his duffel bag in his girlfriend’s dorm room. Kenney had to post a $350 bond for his release, and in the meantime, Fairfield U. had Kenney’s car towed from the campus.
On Monday, Kenney went to Advanced Auto Works to claim his car, a ’96 Mercury. This time, it was Kenney who called the police – he said his GPS unit, charger, iPod and adapter were missing from the car.
Maybe, he should have just stayed home.
Firefighters are on the scene of a house fire on Linda Anne Drive in Milford.

Planners of the annual Columbus Day activities in Bridgeport are shifting in high gear.
The annual parade saluting the Italian explorer extraordinaire is set for 1 p.m. Oct. 11. The line of march stretches from the corner of Wayne Street and Jewett Avenue, south to Madison Avenue and ends at Beers Street, near the entrance to the parking lot of Central High School.
This year’s parade, sponsored by the Council of Italian-American Societies of Greater Bridgeport, this year has the theme of “Diverse Cultures Strengthen Freedom.”
Before the Columbus organizers take it to the streets, however, there will be two holiday concerts performed by the Second Marine Division Band. They are set for Oct. 9 and 10 in The Klein auditorium, 910 Fairfield Ave. Both concerts start at 7 p.m.; doors to the auditorium open at 6 o’clock.
And on a community-minded note, those attending the concerts are asked to bring non-perishable foods to the auditorium. The food collected will be distributed by the city’s Office of Veteran Affairs to local veterans in need.
Those planning to attend the concert still need tickets, even though they’re free. They can be picked up at Lupe’s Drug Store, 3129 Main St.

Daniel Kryzanski, a Stratford lawyer who plans to start a duck boat tour in Norwalk next summer, is accused of setting fire to his office.
The Bridgeport Rescue Mission is making an urgent appeal to the public.
The Mission says that there is so little food in their food pantry that tomorrow, they might be forced to turn away people during their regular 2 to 4 p.m. food pantry box distribution time.
A big source of the problem is that the Connecticut Food Bank, which usually provides the Mission with enough food for the Mission’s clients no longer has food available.
Couple that with the fact that the Mission has been experiencing what it calls “staggering needs” for food by the needy. In the months of July and August, the Mission provided 40,000 meals each month. That’s up from the 12,000 meals provided each month last summer.
The Rescue Mission accepts donations 24/7 at its headquarters at 1088 Fairfield Ave.
