MFD Put Out Structural Fire Tuesday Afternoon
The fire broke out early this afternoon
As voters walked into the polling booths at Gaudet Middle School on Tuesday around 12:30 p.m., there was a black cloud above them that had nothing to do with politics.
The black cloud was literal, caused by a small structural fire at 1 Paul Avenue. The fire started in the shed, which was quickly contained by the Middletown Fire Department.
Middletown Police temporarily blocked off High Street, in the case the fire spread, said officials on scene.
There was damage to the contents inside of the shed as well as the structure. The fire is still under investigation.
