Retired West Haven firefighter and former New Haven Register photo contributor Bob Martens took these photos of a fatal fire ten years ago on Turnor Avenue, which runs one-way south from Putnam Avenue to Augur Street. An 86-year old grandmother perished and her 31-year old grandson was badly burned in the blaze, the source of which was not known at the time these photos were first published.
