Plainville firefighters, police respond to structure fire on East Main Street


PLAINVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) — Plainville police and fire crews responded to a structure fire at the Flower Hill Apartments on East Main Street early Thursday morning.

Flames were found in the attic area of an apartment unit and were quickly put out. Most of the damage was done to the roof of the affected building.

Everyone made it out OK. No injuries have been reported at this time.

Most of the residents will be allowed back into their building. Only one person was displaced.

Plainville Fire Chief Thomas Moschini says working smoke detectors is likely the reason everyone got out in time.

“She said she was in the apartment, heard the smoke detectors, and got out of the building. So they were working….It definitely saved lives”

East Main Street between the town hall building and Pine Street was closed, but has since reopened.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
