Multiple Vehicles on Fire on Fairfield Avenue

STAMFORD, CT (June 22, 2024) – At 10:25 AM, Stamford firefighters were dispatched to a report of several vehicles burning adjacent to a building in the area of 400 Fairfield Avenue.

Truck 3 from the West Side Fire Station arrived first at the scene and found a fire involving several vehicles inside the parking lot and storage area for a local towing company.  Due to the size and location within the parking lot, there was no threat to the adjacent buildings. Firefighters from Engine 2 and Engine 3 also arrived on location and immediately went to work to extinguish the main area of fire. The fire was quickly confined and placed under control 

Firefighters remained at the scene for an additional hour applying foam to gasoline from a breached fuel tank involving the vehicle of origin. Six adjacent stored vehicles at the tow yard sustained moderate damage from the original vehicle.

A total of 26 firefighters operated at the scene.

There were no injuries to responding firefighters.

Due to the use of foam for the extinguishment of gasoline, a representative from the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) responded to the scene. 

Additional scene support was provided by the Stamford Police Department and the Stamford Fire Department Mechanical Division.
