Debris is being removed today from the downtown Shelton fire site. Some large trucks are being loaded with building remnants and the burnt-debris removed to an off-site location.

The removal work would seem to indicate any problems with smoldering debris that could ignite — or hotspots — have ended on the property.

A truck on Howe Avenue waits to be loaded with building debris so it can be trucked off-site on Thursday early afternoon.

Due to the work, Howe Avenue between Center Street and Bridge Street is expected to be closed until 4 p.m. today. The Derby/Shelton Bridge is open.

The short section of Bridge Street that connects Howe Avenue with the post office parking lot has been closed since the fire.
