New Haven Electrical Substation fire 08/12/20 New Haven, CT – New Haven firefighters responded on a verbal for smoke in the area. Once on the scene they transmitted the box for a fire in a United Illuminating Substation on Water St. Companies could only stand by with precautionary hand lines as UI workers de-energized the equipment. The department utilized its chemical/foam unit to flow Purple K. This had little effect and ultimately foam was used to douse the fire and equipment. This also caused a portion of downtown New Haven to loose power.
