MERIDEN — A fire that had broken out at an apartment building on Stoddard Drive was quickly doused by some of the several fire companies who responded on Tuesday.
The fire at 29 Stoddard Drive was reported at shortly before 8 p.m., according to a police and fire department dispatcher at the police station.
Police were starting to block the road near its Centennial Avenue intersection when the first arriving firefighters got a fire hose to the flames and knocked them down. It was unclear whether there were any injuries.
Stoddard runs between Centennial and Allen avenues near Crow Hollow Brook and Lincoln Middle School.
