BLAZE FROM THE PAST-UNITED BUILDERS SUPPLY FIRE

Electric Boat workers were in the first day of a general strike after contract negotiations had broken down. All in all, this would be a bad thing for the people in our area but on this day it was fortuitous. During this time there was no statewide ... (Full Story & Photos)

BLAZE FROM THE PAST-2 FIRES 50 YEARS APART

The first major fire occurred in June of 1964 while the second occurred in June of 2014. Both fires required a large response of fire equipment and firefighters to extinguish. The efforts of both groups ... (Full Story & Photos)
