CORNWALL – Tenants at the Brookdale Arms had a smoky situation on their hands Wednesday morning.

The Cornwall Fire Department was called to the Brookdale Avenue apartment complex around 10 a.m. for a fire in a garbage collector.

Firefighters were able to put it out in short order, which caused minimal smoke damage to the building.

“Firefighters efficiently fought the fire and cleared the smoke to allow people back into their apartments,” Chief Pierre Voisine told Cornwall Newswatch.
