Norwalk Fire Department

Press Release

November 26, 2018

The Norwalk Fire Department responded to a trash compactor fire, at the Main Avenue Walmart, this morning at 7:59 am. The compactor/dumpster was located at the rear of the store and attached through the wall to the warehouse section, of the building. When firefighters arrived, smoke from the fire had filled the warehouse and had created a light haze within the retail area.

While firefighters were working to extinguish the fire, additional fire crews worked to limit the smoke infiltration into the retail areas. Firefighters had to call the dumpster contractor to the scene, to remove the unit from the building and dump the contents in the parking lot, for extinguishment.   

The store was ventilated and monitored before firefighters left the scene, at 10:45am . Fire Inspector Bryan Scully is investigating the cause of the fire and Health Department Inspectors were heading to the scene.
