Cars Destroyed in Garage Fire in East Windsor



    East Windsor Fire Contained to Detached Garage

    (Published Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016)

    Fire destroyed a detached garage in East Windsor this morning and damaged the cars that were inside it.

    The garage on Abbe Road is close to a house, but firefighters were able to get it under control and fire did not spread to the home.

    A neighbor saw smoke around 9:50 a.m. and knocked on the homeowner's door. He said he also heard paint cans popping.  

    The Broad Brook Fire Department, East Windsor Ambulance, East Windsor police, along with crews from the Warehouse Point Fire Department, as well as Enfield and South Windsor, responded to the scene.

    The homeowner works on cars, according to a neighbor, and fire officials said several tires were in the garage, which created a lot of dark smoke.

    There were also propane tanks nearby, but there were no issues with them.

    No injuries are reported.

    The fire marshal will be investigating the cause of the fire.
