No buildings or homes in the mainly commercial area had to be evacuated.

Naugatuck Police spokesman Bryan Cammarata said the road was closed from its intersection with Neumann Street to its intersection with Woodruff Street. He said it was expected to be closed until at least 10 o'clock Tuesday night.
