SHELTON, CT - Just before 12:00 noon on November 24, 2022, the Shelton Fire Department was dispatched to a reported vehicle fire on Route 8 SB approaching Exit 11. First companies on scene found a fully involved vehicle in the right hand lane. Firefighting foam was used due to the difficulty in suppression from a ruptured gas tank. Route 8 SB from Exit 12 to 11 was shut down to Thanksgiving Day traffic for an extended period due to the incident.
