No injuries are reported but the steel building sustained a lot of damage and the codes department has condemned it.

Crews are using a town excavator to move burning garbage and equipment from a building that includes at least five bays. It's the building where people drop off their garbage before it's loaded up and taken to a landfill.

The Wilton Fire Chief says the last employee left the dump property around 5:30 p.m. Thursday. It's unclear how the fire started.
