Norwalk, CT - The Norwalk Fire Department responded to a trash compactor fire at the Main Avenue Walmart on the morning of November 26th at 7:59 A.M. The compactor/dumpster was located at the rear of the store and attached through the wall to the warehouse section of the building. When firefighters arrived, smoke from the fire had filled the warehouse and created a light haze within the retail

JUMP TO FILE #112618118 area. While firefighters were working to extinguish the fire, additional fire crews worked to limit the smoke infiltration into the retail areas. Firefighters had to call the dumpster contractor to the scene to remove the unit from the building

and dump the contents in the parking lot for extinguishment. The store was ventilated and monitored before firefighters left the scene at 10:45 A.M. Fire Inspector Bryan Scully is investigating the cause of the fire and Health Department Inspectors were heading to the scene. - NORWALK FIRE DEPT.
