At 8:00 a.m. Co.1 was dispatched to 368 Hawthorne Ave in Derby for a structure fire. Derby command was reporting a 10′ x 20′ single story apartment fully involved. Tower 7, which is usually the truck to respond could not fit in the tight area so Engine 2 took in the assignment. Upon arrival Engine 2 was assigned as the RIT team. The fire was placed under control a short time after and Engine 2 returned to Shelton. Read the Valley Independent Sentinel story HERE.
