Waterbury Fire arrives on a reported structure fire on West Grove St to find a well involve vacant 2.5 story wood frame. With no exposures in close proximity a decision is made to take a defensive posture due to the poor structural integrity of the dwelling which has beeen a haven for drug traffic and vagrants. The building would eventually collapse making it impossible to overhaul an engine company would remain on scene until late the next morning to take fire watch and extinguish any flare ups.
