New Britain Fire Captain Michael Berry said all companies pitched in to help extinguish the fire which was ongoing for quite some time as the fire burned through the walls.

Captain Michael Berry said it was unknown if the residents can return to the neighboring buildings.

Captain Berry said that the windy conditions made fighting the fire more difficult but said the downtown location of the fire proved to be of some relief as the street is wide enough for the firetrucks.
