New Britain, CT - Firefighters knocked down a garage fire within minutes after arriving at 51 Woodland Street on September 20th. The fire was caused by a resident who discarded embers on the outside of the garage from a previous controlled fire thinking the embers were properly extinguished. The fire spread to the garage and caused a little scorching on the side of the building next to it, but there was no extension into that building.
