Firefighters from all five of Newtown’s volunteer companies were dispatched to Club 24, within Plaza South at 266 Main Street South, shortly before 6 pm Thursday, September 10, when a fire was reported in the club’s sauna. Botsford Fire Chief Andrew White had command of the scene. White reported smoke inside the building upon his arrival. Once the small fire was located, firefighters were able to quickly extinguish it before it could spread. No injuries were reported. Firefighters departed the scene around 7:20 pm. The fire caused an early end to a special Board of Fire Commissioners meeting that evening. Without a quorum, the group could not take its planned vote on changes to its Capital Improvement Plan. —photo courtesy Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management
