A fire in a West Conn dorm Friday night was quickly extinguished. Firefighters responded to Centennial Hall on the westside campus shortly after 10pm and found a working fire in a trash compactor. A second alarm was called, bringing in additional fire companies. Some firefighters went up to the 4th floor to monitor a small attic as it had filled with smoke from the trash chute. Officials did not report any injuries to residents or firefighters. Centennial Hall is the newest of the residence halls and was built in 2004.
