Naugatuck Fire Department

2 Alarm Apartment Building Fire 933 Rubber Ave 12/07/12

Naugatuck Fire arrived to find heavy fire show from the second floor of building 8 of the the Southwood Apartments at 933 Rubber Ave. From the heavy smoke pushing from the eaves the fire had entered the attic space of the building. Mutual aid engines from Oxford and Beacon Falls provided working crews and station coverage, while Waterbury's Truck 3 assisted with roof operations. Several trench cuts were made above the fire so that the building could be vented and the attic fire extinguished. The fire appeared to be held to the unit of origin and the 3 adjacent apartments suffered water and smoke damage displacing four families. The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the borough's fire marshal.
