More than 100 firefighters respond to mutual aid call to put out industrial park fire


Around 100 firefighters took on an industrial park fire in Connecticut on Sunday, spending several hours on scene and dumping thousands of gallons of water.

The fire, which took place at the Francis J. Clarke Industrial Park and was reported in the early afternoon, was so hot that it was difficult to get to the core of the blaze.

“We’re still having a hard time getting to the seed of the fire,” said Fire Marshal Tom Galliford nearly five hours into the operation. “We really haven’t been inside at all.”

In all, 10 fire departments were able to control the fire around 8:30 p.m.

According to the Newstimes, the building housed two companies, and there were no reported injuries.
