Mystic, Conn. - Firefighters spent hours fighting a massive fire in the seaport district of Mystic.
At approximately 9 pm on Sunday, November 27th, the Mystic Fire Department, along with mutual aid companies, were dispatched for reports of smoke and flames visible from Seaport Marine, in the area of 2 Washington St. As 1st alarm companies received their tones, a 2nd, and subsequent 3rd alarm, were immediately transmitted for a fully involved structure fire.
