Naugatuck, CT multiple alarm factory fire

09/25/23 Naugatuck, CT – Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke issuing from a large, two-story mill building and companies immediately went defensive. Additional alarms were transmitted bringing surrounding towns to the scene. Firefighters had trouble throughout the firefight due to a lack of hydrants and water in the area. Access was also troublesome due to narrow roadways and railroad tracks fronting the building. Three aerials and multiple master streams operated to bring the fire under control in three hours. At the height of the fire, the number-one side wall collapsed into the street causing train traffic to be briefly halted. The cause of the fire is under investigation. An emergency demolition was ordered due to the damage sustained.
