Fire crews remained near the downtown Shelton fire scene on early Wednesday morning, turning on a hose to douse a still smoldering hotspot.

Smoke was emitting from a pile of burned-out debris in the corner of the historic block closest to the U.S. post office in Viaduct Square.

Firefighters could be seen turning on the hose at about 5:20 a.m. this morning.

It’s now been more than two days since the fire broke out just past midnight on Monday morning, displacing almost 30 residents and a half dozen businesses and causing a four-story retail and apartment complex to collapse.
