BREAKING NEWS, Wednesday, June 15, 4:25 p.m.Wilton Fire Department responded to a vehicle fire in the rear of Wilton High School this afternoon, and was able to extinguish the blaze without any injuries reported.

“We got a report just before 3 p.m. of a vehicle fire in the rear of the high school. We had two engines and an engine tanker on scene, and kept the fire from spreading to the dumpsters and the kitchen, which was open,” said deputy chief Mark Amatrudo, adding that all six on-duty firefighters were on the scene and that it took 10 minutes to extinguish the fire. Amatrudo also said that no one was hurt.

The vehicle involved was a “cleaning van” belonging to a contractor who was at the high school to do work on the ventilation and duct  equipment for the school.

Amatrudo told reporters that there is no indication of what caused the fire but that the investigation “will continue.” He said he assumed that there were flammable materials on the van but couldn’t confirm that at this point.

Wednesday was the last day of school for students, but there were no children at the high school as all final exams had been  completed by the time of the fire.
