BRIDGEPORT - Demolition continued today on one of the buildings that caught fire at the former Remington Arms plant in Bridgeport.
The flames broke out in a building at the plant on Maple and Helen streets at around 10:30 a.m. Saturday.
Neighbors have expressed concern over the soot in the air, however, the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) says the air quality is safe. The DEP also says it must finish testing asbestos levels before the entire building can be taken down.
City officials say the entire cleanup could cost up to $11 million and take more than a year.
