NORWALK, Conn. – Norwalk firefighters extinguished a fire at D’Orio Custom Wood Works on Wilson Avenue early Wednesday afternoon but had to return to the scene several hours later to put out another fire at the facility.

No injuries were reported in either blaze. The first occurred at about 12:30 p.m. when an industrial dust collector caught fire and scorched a portion of the rear wall.

Firefighters brought the first blaze under control within about 20 minutes, according to Deputy Fire Chief Stephen Shay. Three fire engines and two fire trucks were called to the scene.

The second fire occurred on the roof of the building at about 5 p.m. but was extinguished in a shorter amount of time.

By what we saw and knowing they went back for a third time and never left all night maybe more inspections would be a sugestion after what a lot of us saw the first fire.

Its amazing feet from Village creek you would think the building would of had many inspections.Less time in the fire boat tooling around and more time on land learning fire science would do the firemen and city more good.

I'm not saying anything against the firemen its back to leadership the last Lajoies fire could of used some classroom experience right down the street.Suppose some day McCarthy will leave the department is the same condition as Rilling did.
