Where firefighters come to talk training

KEITH MURATORI aerial video FIREGROUNDIMAGES.COM Seaview Ave. Multiple Alarm Fire (Bridgeport, CT) 9/11/14 Long Version

This massive fire captured by drone started at around 6:50 pm on September, 11, 2014 in Bridgeport, CT. Battalion 2 was first on scene reporting light smoke from a 2 city block long factory. Shortly after, the assignment would go to the equivalent of a 5th alarm. The warehouse, located at 2102 Seaview Avenue, houses a perfume factory, as well as a roofing company. Chemicals stored in upwards of 55,000 barrels exploded like fireballs into the night sky. Run-off from the firefighting operations has also caused a massive problem in the surrounding bodies of water. Coast Guard and D.E.P. are investigating the reach of the damage into the water. Radiant heat from the blaze had police and fire evacuating people from neighborhoods close to the fire.
