Minor fire contained at Coast Guard Academy

New London — City firefighters responded Friday morning to a report of smoke in a building at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and left the scene after securing it about 45 minutes later, Battalion Chief Tom Curcio said. 

A worker had started a fire while working on the building’s roof, sending a “moderate” amount of smoke throughout the third and fourth floors of the building’s north end, Curcio said. Workers were able to extinguish the fire. 

No one was injured.
