BRIDGEPORT, CT (WFSB) -

Crews in Bridgeport responded to the Wheelabrator Company on Tuesday night for the report of a fire.

At 11 p.m., some firefighters had left the facility, but others were seen putting out hot spots.

City officials said a large boiler caught on fire, and crews were worried it would spread to two others, but the fire was put out before that happened. The one boiler was heavily damaged, however two others were not.

City officials said it was a good thing that the fire was extinguished quickly.

No injuries were reported and there is no hazmat situation at this time.
