Just prior to 10pm Torrington Fire responded to a call of heavy smoke coming from a store in the 600 block of Main St. The Torrington career and volunteer fire fighters arrived to find a heavy smoke condition coming from the Smokers Express a discount cigarette and cigar store. As crews gained access and laddered the roof a call was made to Winsted for mutual aid Winsted Volunteers for their RIT team ans an additional ladder. Several cuts were made in the roof to ventilate the structure and gain access to the smoky fire which appeared to be in the cockloft space of the building. Fire crews remained on scene for about an hour to determine if any additional pockets of fire existed and to conduct an investigation into the cause of the incident.
