VIDEO REPORT–8:53pm–#ctfire–#Stratfird CT–Fire ripped through the Stonybrook Co-op of businesses tonight. Initial reports say the fire started in the roof area of Jalapeno’s Restaurant and spread to The Village Pub. Village Pub co-owner Debbie Redman told us they were getting ready for their Halloween party when the smelled “something”. Thinking it could be one of their Halloween decorations they put them out but discovered it was the fire. Everyone left the building and they called 911. Firefighters were quick to the scene and began their attack on the fire. The bulk of the fire was in the back of the building. Bridgeport Fire gave mutual aid to Stratford. The entire plaza suffered from heavy smoke damage. It was difficult to determine which businesses that were affected. If you or your child goes to the new karate studio you may want to call their status in the morning. Heavy smoke damage may have many of the business closed.
I hope the call our friends at ServPro,they will make it Like It Never Even Happened!

Bridgeport, Conn. (October 31, 2014) – In preparation for President Barack Obama and Gov. Dan Malloy visiting the state’s largest city for an event at Central High School on Sunday, Bridgeport officials are announcing street and parking restrictions while they’re in town.
“We’re thrilled to have President Obama and Governor Malloy visiting our city,” said Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch. “Bridgeport is getting better every day. That’s in part because of help from our friends President Obama and Governor Malloy. Working together, we are we’re creating jobs, growing businesses, increasing access to pre-k for kids, and building new parks. With that said, I’m asking all of my fellow Bridgeporters to make accommodations to ensure the safety and security of President Obama and Governor Malloy.”
As the U. S. Secret Service takes the lead on establishing parking restrictions before and during a visit by President Obama – which is their established protocol for any presidential event – the following street and parking restrictions will be in place:
On-street parking ban: On Sunday, a mandatory on-street parking ban will be in effect for all vehicles on the following streets: Capitol Avenue (between Lindley Street and Park Avenue); Lincoln Boulevard (between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue); and Taft Avenue (between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue).
Towing: For streets within the parking ban, vehicles will be towed starting at 8:00AM – 8:00PM on Sunday, November 2.
Driving restrictions and recommendations: All streets within the parking ban area will be closed. And, motorists are strongly encouraged to avoid Main Street and Madison Avenue.
Route recommendations: Traffic will likely be heavy across the city due to street closures. But if you’re driving on Sunday, the best route to travel through in this area is Park Avenue.
Parking for ticketholders: Ticket holders should park in the lots at Harbor Yard. Shuttle buses will be available to transport people to Central High School. People with questions should contact203-576-7671.
Tickets: Nobody will be admitted into the event without a ticket, and even for ticketholders, there will be no parking at Central High School.
“The safety and security of President Obama, kids, and families in our city is our top priority,” said City Council President Tom McCarthy and Councilman Howard Austin Sr. “So please follow the rules laid out by the Secret Service and Bridgeport Police Department. Thanks for your cooperation.”
