Stochastic perturbation of two-level atoms strongly driven by a coherent light field is analyzed by the quantum trajectory method. Narrow resonances as hole burning and dispersive Fano-like profile occur in the spectra in the regime where the noise dominates the Rabi oscillations. It is shown that in this case the stochastic noise can unexpectedly create phase correlation between the neighboring atomic dressed states. This phase correlation is responsible for quantum interference between the related transitions resulting in anomalous modifications of the resonance fluorescence spectra.
