A fire was reported in the basement of a store in the North Street shopping Plaza in Danbury this morning. Police temporarily blocked off the entrances from Hayestown and Padanaram Roads. Scanner reports are that the fire started in a light fixture in the basement and Burlington was evacuated as a precaution.
Meanwhile Danbury Fire Department did some outdoor training this weekend and the topic was responses to Danbury Municipal Airport. The Department's Aircraft Rescue Firefighters team spent the day learning about responses to the multiple fuel farms on the airport grounds. After the walk through of each site they discussed different scenarios.
