PHOTOS: Canal Street Structure Fire

Crews were dispatched to the scene at 235 Canal St. around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Firefighters from Shelton, Derby, Ansonia and Trumbull responded to a fire at 235 Canal St. around 1:30 this morning and battled the blaze for hours, according to a report by the Valley Indy.

It started at the north end of that building before spreading to a neighboring business that houses Better Packages, Inc., a company that manufactures water-activated tape dispensers and carton-sealing systems.

We put a quick knock on it, but now it’s a case of you take an inch, you give an inch,” Shelton Fire Chief Fran Jones said. “We’re playing a cat and mouse game of knocking it down once it shows.”

There were still fire fighters on the scene when I drove by at 7:45 a.m.

Chief Jones said firefighters would probably be there throughout the day to make sure no smaller fires started.
