Part of Route 7 in New Milford Closed Due to Fire

View Comments (


    Route 7 is closed for almost a mile between Still River Drive and Dodd Road in New Milford because of a brush fire.

    Officials said fire stared as a small shed fire and spread quickly because of wind.

    It is burning behind Windmill Diner.

    Mutual aid has been brought in from several communities, including Brookfield, Gaylordsville and Washington.
