Crews fight fire in Winooski

Posted: Updated:

Traffic was snarled in Winooski Wednesday afternoon after a fire shut down Main Street.

Fire officials tell us they got the call around 3:20 p.m. and multiple departments responded to Pecor Auto Sales. Main Street from Spring Street up a few blocks was closed to traffic. And drivers were asked to find alternate routes while crews got the scene cleaned up.

Fire officials say the building's construction made the blaze hard to fight.

"There were a lot of structural issues that we had to work around and cut through to get to the seat of the fire," said Capt. Alex Paci of the Winooski Fire Department.

No word yet on what caused the fire and officials could not tell us when this story was published if anyone was hurt.
