CORNWALL, Conn. (AP) — Firefighters from municipalities in Connecticut and as distant as Dover Plains, New York, have battled a massive fire for hours that destroyed two buildings, equipment and lumber in West Cornwall.
The Republican-American reports that the fire at Northeast Building Supply Monday night and early Tuesday was fueled by lumber and wind. Firefighters came from Canaan, Cornwall, Dover Plains, Falls Village, Goshen, Kent, New Milford, Norfolk, Sharon, Sherman and Warren.
Firefighters also faced water shortages and below-freezing temperatures before extinguishing the 12-hour blaze. Firefighters used water from the nearby Housatonic River.
Town Fire Marshal Stanley MacMillan said no one was injured.
He said the cause has not been determined and the investigation is continuing.
