Fire Spreads to Tractor-Trailer in Bloomfield

Bluehills Avenue in Bloomfield has reopened after a fire that started in a storage shed spread to a tractor-trailer parked outside early Friday morning.

The fire broke out at 1213 Bluehills Avenue and likely started in a wood stove belonging to a wood business, according to the fire department.

The fire consumed the shed and then spread to the truck.

Officials from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection responded because of the diesel fuel in the truck.

No injured are reported, but the shed and truck were destroyed.

The fire department remains at the scene to dealing with small hotspots.
