Officials are investigating the cause of a two-alarm fire that badly damaged a specialty metals warehouse and caused train delays Friday night.

Firefighters were called to Ansonia Copper & Brass, which is located near the Farrel Corporation, on Main Street just before 5:30 p.m. The fire is believed to have started in the walls and spread to the roof.

The fire was out sometime before 6:30 p.m. However, there was severe damage to two buildings at Copper & Brass.

No one was injured in the fire.

One train on the Waterbury Metro North line has been delayed 35 to 40 minutes, due to this fire. The train on the Waterbury line is delayed between Derby and Seymour.
