Machine Fire 10/08/2020

Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 2:00 PM

31 Edwin Road, Keystone Paper and Box Company - SWFD responded to a reported machine fire inside the building. Upon arrival of the Incident Commander, a “working fire” was declared. Engine 6 and Tower 1 crews made an aggressive interior attack with heavy fire conditions in and around a very large machine. Due to the need for additional apparatus and manpower, a second alarm was transmitted.

The fire was declared under control within the hour with no injuries to employees or FD members.

The SWFD greatly appreciates the on-scene support from Manchester Fire Rescue EMS, Manchester Fire Department 8th District, East Hartford Fire Department, Broad Brook Fire Department, Ambulance Service of Manchester, and South Windsor Police Department.

Town coverage (and response to several alarms) was provided and very much appreciated by The Ellington Volunteer Fire Department (CT), the Windsor Fire Department, and Warehouse Point Fire Department.

The fire is under investigation by the South Windsor Fire Marshal's Office.

As always, an outstanding job by our 9-1-1 Dispatch Center.
