Fire damage closes Stamford's Italian Center
A fire and subsequent damage led to the postponement of a gala at the Italian Center in Stamford Thursday night.
Officials say the building sustained smoke and structural damage from the fire, and it will be closed until further notice. No one was injured.
The Italian Center's executive director says that the fire came at a difficult time of year for business, with many weddings and banquets due to be held in the coming weeks.
The center has stood on Newfield Avenue since 1970.
