Beacon Hose responded overnight on Aug. 30 to a structure fire at 127 Beacon Valley Road. The vacant two-story home was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived around 3:30 a.m.
Chief Jim Trzaski ordered a defensive exterior attack and we extinguished the fire in about an hour. About 25 firefighters, including a mutual-aid ladder truck from Naugatuck, responded to the scene. Citizens’ Engine Co. No. 2 provided mutual-aid station coverage at our firehouse.
There were no injuries, and we had cleared the scene by 7 a.m. The fire was under an arson investigation.
Thanks to longtime Beacon Hose photographer Jeremy Rodorigo for the first of these photos, and Taylor Docimo for the rest on her first structure fire.
