Fire broke through the roof of a Connecticut gun plant Thursday morning but firefighters managed to contain it to a small part of the facility.
The North Haven Fire Department tweeted a quick photo from the scene upon arrival at 9:15 a.m. Firefighters extinguished the fire in a manufacturing portion of the plant an hour and a quarter later.
All employees evacuated the building at the sound of the first alarm, a statement issued by company management states. One employee was treated for a minor injury.
Boosted to two alarms, the fire also drew responders from nearby Hamden and Wallingford. Firefighters at New Haven and Wallingford took charge of the North Haven fire station while the city’s responders were occupied with the plant fire.
No official ruling on the cause of the fire have been made.
