Connecticut Tower Catches Fire
September 12, 2007 at 5:38 AM (PT)
A fire early TUESDAY damaged a tower owned by COX RADIO in STAMFORD, CT. The fire at an antenna 350 feet up the tower burned itself out before fire crews could reach it, but falling debris also ignited a satellite dish below, according to the STAMFORD ADVOCATE.
The tower is used by COX AC WCTZ (96.7 THE COAST) and Talk WSTC-A/STAMFORD, as well as noncommercial WEDW/STAMFORD (relaying WPKT/MERIDEN-HARTFORD). The stations reportedly remained on the air despite the damage.
