Willimantic Waste Paper Co. Smoke, Soot & Smell
The massive fire at Willimantic Waste Paper Co. this weekend resulted in a total loss, but fortunately no one was injured. Fourteen fire companies banned together to help get the massive fire under control. U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal praised the quick response and said it serves as a model to the country.
The fire left a 100,000 square foot shell remaining behind. There is still much cleanup and the surrounding areas are seeing damage from the fire as well and will take quite some time.
The cause of the fire has been ruled undetermined due to the extensive heat and fire. For now there is no indication of foul play.
