New Haven 2nd alarm 1303 Chapel St. vacant dwelling 
12/25/19 New Haven, CT – New Haven firefighters hoped for a quiet Christmas as they came on shift. Instead, as they pulled out of quarters for the box alarm, companies reported they could see it. Engine Company 6 arrived reporting a top floor fire. Multiple hand lines were stretched as the fire continued to grow. Companies made an interior attack, but were chased out due to deteriorating conditions. A 2nd alarm was transmitted as companies transitioned to exterior operations. Truck companies went to work with a tower ladder and ladder pipe operations. Additional two and half hand lines also flanked the dwelling on all sides to darken down the fire. It took companies about two hours to bring the fire under control. The cause of the fire is being investigated by the fire marshals office.

Waterbury 725 Bank St Mill building fire:

07/30/18 Waterbury, CT – A long vacant mill building went up in flames in the city of Waterbury. The 1st call was received just before one o’clock. Companies reported that a large volume of fire could be seen while responding. Upon arrival, they had a four-story, mill building fully involved. Companies were hampered by difficult access to the building, including a natural gas plant as an exposure. Four ladder pipes and several multi-versals were used to darken down the heavy volume of fire after a two and a half hour firefight. Companies were expected to maintain a fire watch until the building is demolished. The cause of the fire is suspicious.
