Firefighters from 3 departments fight fire at bridge over Housatonic

Feb 13, 2012 Full story: The Stratford Star 21

Firefighters from Stratford and Milford are battling a fire burning brush and a bulkhead at the rail bridge over the Housatonic River reported around 10:15 p.m. Monday, Feb 13.

The right and center lanes of I-95 south have been closed, but the state Department of Transportation reported a vehicle fire. Reports from the scene indicate Milford firefighters were shooting water off the Moses Wheeler Bridge to douse the fire.

Around 11:15 p.m. firefighters were directing streams of water from a fireboat onto hot spots to protect the bridge.

The Sikorsky Aircraft Fire Department has sent its boat to the scene. The boat the Stratford Fire Department received when the Stratford Department received a new vessel is not equipped with pumps. Full Story

To deal with our problems, we need to be practical and realistic. If we are to be realistic, we need to use our human intelligence properly, which means we need a calm mind.
