Meriden 6th alarm 169 Pratt St. building fire
05/05/23 Meriden, CT – Firefighters from the Pratt St. firehouse, only several block away, found a large factory building with heavy smoke and fire showing from the rear. The building was partially vacant at the time. Firefighters did a quick search and found one employee in the building and assisted him to safety before a second alarm was transmitted. Companies then went defensive. Multiple additional alarms were transmitted rapidly as the fire quickly extended throughout the building. The additional alarms brought companies from as far away as Hartford and Hamden to the scene. The fire took about two hours to bring under control. Companies remained on the scene for a fire watch throughout the night. The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Meriden and State Fire Marshal’s office.
