At 3:55 pm on Thursday, 3/11/2021 the Preston Fire Department was dispatched to 4 Wilderness Acres Drive for black smoke on the second floor. Preston Chief Casey arrived at 3:59. P-1 called the working fire on the second floor and requested Norwich Engine 2 with the Mohegan Tribal FAST. Poquetanuck Engine 11 positioned in the driveway and stretched a one and three quarter inch hose line through the front door, up the interior stairs. Crews encountered a heavy smoke condition and were able to keep the fire to the room of origin. Preston Tanker 22 nursed Engine 11 with a 5 inch supply line and the Preston Fire Marshal is investigating.
