BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (WTNH) — Bridgeport is helping to rebuild a local farm after a fire ripped through the Reservoir Avenue Community Farm on Monday night.
The city says the badly burned building will have to be torn down. The community farm was part of the city’s green initiative, and now the city is stepping in to help redesign the area.
Police arrested Jimmy Gantt, who they say started that fire. He now faces several charges including arson and reckless endangerment.
The co-founder of the farm says they hope to be open again in two months.
