Working garage fire reported on Bell Road, Darien
A working garage fire is reported at 541 Bell Road, Darien. The structure is about 40 to 50 square feet and is "on the ground" -- burned up -- at this point, but there are several exposures to other structures that firefighters will deal with, says a first responder on scene. There's a gap of 20 to 30 feet between the garage and another structure.
The city's Fast Team was called, then canceled. All available manpower from Darien is responding, along with mutual aid from Alexander, Pembroke, Corfu and Indian Falls.
There's a pond on Bell Road that firefighters may be able to access; it's estimated to be 1,050 feet from the fire.
The location is off Fargo Road and it's at the dead end of the street.
UPDATE 6:26 a.m.: Alexander is to fill in at Darien's Fire Hall. There's a live power line in front of the garage, firefighters are told.
