Fire destroys marching band instruments and equipment

Published August 16 2007

NORWALK -- An early morning fire ripped through a field house at Andrew's Field destroying instruments, uniforms and equipment belonging to the Norwalk High School marching band. The fire was reported at 2:49 a.m. by a newspaper delivery man in the area.

When firefighters arrived, the field house was fully engulfed. Fire and police said the heat from the flames was so intense that a nearby trailer where uniforms are stored was also partially damaged.

Fire officials said power lines to the building melted and were sparking posing further danger to firefighters. Power crews deactivated the line once the blaze was brought under control.

Norwalk Marching Bears Band Director Jeff Smith told police that six instruments worth about $10,000 were destroyed. Other instruments stored in the nearby trailer were not damaged, Smith said.
