An early morning fire destroyed a Waterbury business on Stowe Street.
Fire officials say neighbors heard an explosion, and when firefighters arrived at the scene shortly after 5 a.m. Tuesday, flames could be seen shooting from the one-story structure.
The building was home to a dumpling business, where authorities say the owners made dumplings for sale to stores and restaurants.
The building is near the Waterbury Senior Center, VFW and an apartment building. Fire departments from Waterbury, Middlesex and Stowe were able to contain the fire to the one building.
"There is an apartment building to the right side of the building that had some superficial siding damage, the siding on the left hand side of the building to the legion has some siding damage, but nothing structural-- just all superficial," Waterbury Fire Chief Gary Dillon said.
State Police fire investigators were combing through the heavily damaged building Tuesday morning looking for a cause of the blaze, but they do not believe it's suspicious. Damage is estimated at $150,000. There were no injuries.
