Man Suffers Burns to Face and Hands in CT Repair Shop Fire

One man is hospitalized in the burn unit of Bridgeport Hospital with burns to his face and hands after a fire at a body shop on Ledyard Street in Hartford’s South Meadows at 5am on February 6, reported 

A firefighter with a possible knee injury was also sent to the hospital after slipping on ice.

Because of toxic, inflammatory checmicals inside, such as paints, oils, and fillers, firefighters attacked the exterior, setting up dikes to contain any poisonous runoff.

Captain Helene Lynch says one thing they didn’t have to worry about was the water supply — because firefighters have been making sure the hydrants are accessible and in working order since recent snowfalls, reported

Cause of the blaze is under investigation.
