Fire at Wilton YMCA Branch

By Staff Report | News

WILTON — A late night fire on Monday, October 28, which may have suspicious origins closed down the Saratoga Regional YMCA’s Wilton branch building on Old Gick Road.  

There were no injuries reported from the fire, which was reported to begin about 10 p.m. The branch was open at the time and a total of about a dozen members and staff were evacuated without incident.

The building affected by the fire was the oldest at the Wilton complex, which led to a complete closure of the branch on Tuesday. 

However, the tennis court building and additional facilities which were part of a $7.5 million expansion of the branch were reopened the next day. 

At the scene, Greenfield Fire Chief John Lant was quoted as calling the fire” very, very suspicious,” saying that State Police dog had found something at the site that is being investigated as a possible accelerant.
