2:47pm–#Bridgeport CT– The bank clock in the background timestamps the beginning of demolition of the former AGI Rubber Company located at 141 Stratford Avenue.  Yesterday there was another spectacular fire that has plagued the buildings over the years.    The city submitted an emergency demolition order today and Stamford Wrecking will be doing the demolition.  Workers said they are aware of PCBs on the site and will be shipping the debris to a “hot location” for dumping.  The materials will be treated later.  The workers were unaware of any work previously.  The city in May 2015 received a $200,000 grant from the EPA for PCB and building removal.  City spokesperson Rowena White says she is unaware of any work on the site regarding this grant.
