Residential Surveillance Video Sought for Beacon Falls Fire Investigation

The Beacon Falls Fire Marshal's Office is asking anyone with residential surveillance video near Rimmon Hill Road to contact them after a fire at a former meat-packing facility on Thursday.

Fire officials are looking for any residents who have security cameras facing the street near Rimmon Hill. They said the area includes Rimmon Hill Road, Back Rimmon Road, Pines Bridge Road, West Road and surrounding side streets.

Anyone who has cameras or who may have seen suspicious activity in the area is asked to contact Deputy Fire Marshal Cal Brennan at (203) 598-8827. Tips will remain confidential.

The fire marshal's office continues to investigate the massive fire at the former meat-packing facility on Rimmon Hill Road.

Firefighters from six towns were called in around 2:30 a.m. to fight the fire. They fought the flames for about six hours. Fire officials said there was a lack of fire hydrants in the area so seven tankers carrying more than 200,000 gallons of water were brought in.

According to fire officials, the building was a meat-packing facility from 1949 until 1983 and more recently was being used as a storage warehouse for a family greenhouse business.

The building was destroyed by the fire and was demolished to extinguish all of the flames, firefighters added.
