DANBURY - Numerous vehicles were destroyed late Tuesday when a fire broke out at a landscaping yard located on South Street.
Jamie Gagliardo, a spokesman for the fire department, said firefighters got a call about the blaze at around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday and that the first people to arrive found multiple vehicles, including two pickup trucks, a dump truck and a box truck on fire in an fenced in lot.
Firefighters had to cut open the gate to access the blaze, which had also spread to a storage shed that was located on the property. Several engine companies were sent to the blaze and used foam as well as several water lines to put out the flames.
Police officers stayed on site to secure the yard through the evening hours and officials with the city’s fire marshal’s office were on site Wednesday investigating the incident. No cause of the fire has been determined.
