By Xian Chiang-Waren



NEW HAVEN — At 3:30 a.m. on New Year’s Day, New Haven residents Matt and Jackie Schlein received a frantic call from their daughter, informing them that their home was on fire.

When they arrived home in New Haven a few hours after receiving the phone call, their house was, as Schlein wrote on his Facebook page, a “toasted shred” of the structure that he and his family had lived in for 18 years. They lost their cat, their belongings, and the structure of their home.
