A marina warehouse in Mystic was heavily damaged in a four-alarm fire late Sunday night.
Multiple departments responded around 9 p.m. to Washington Street on the Stonington side of Mystic for the massive fire at the Seaport Marine Warehouse.
“It’s an older building that’s been around as long as I’ve been here which is 26 years,” said Bruce Flax, president, Mystic Chamber of Commerce.
The Salvation Army New London Canteen said it responded as well. The fire started at around 8:45 p.m. and quickly grew.
Crews had to use water from the Mystic River to help extinguish the flames, which were visible for hours. “It’s sad, it’s always sad when something like this happens,” Flax said. “It looks like nobody was hurt which is good.”
The Whalers Inn, a boutique hotel, was evacuated because of the amount of smoke in the air.
