Multiple departments battle fire at old meat packing building in Beacon Falls

BEACON FALLS -- Multiple crews responded to a fire in Beacon Falls early Thursday morning.

The fire happened at an old meatpacking building on the top of Rimmon Hill Road around 3:30 a.m.

Fire crews faced water challenges due to no hydrants being in the area.

Beacon Hose Company reports that about three dozen fire personnel from Beacon Hose, Oxford, Seymour, Bethany, and Southbury were all on scene to help with the water supply and to help battle the flames.

Seven tanks and three portable ponds from six companies were shuttling water from a hydrant near the Dollar General on Route 67 in Oxford.

Fire officials asked drivers to avoid Rimmon Hill between Back Rimmon Road and West Road until further notice.

No other details were released.
