Asst. Chief Joseph Fusaro, August 07

August of 1987 was a very warm and humid month. Westerly was experiencing a busy summer Saturday on August 15, 1987.

BLAZE FROM THE PAST-UNITED BUILDERS SUPPLY FIRE

Asst. Chief Joseph Fusaro, July 02

July 1, 1988 was a beautiful day in Westerly 33 years ago. It was sunny and warm with low humidity. There was a light breeze from the southwest. 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)
