Other emergency calls have kept fire and police departments busy across Connecticut.

 

 In Colebrook, firefighters responded to a fire on Greenwoods Turnpike Tuesday night, an emergency dispatcher said.

 

 Although the fire was contained to the fireplace, smoke backed up into the house because the damper was closed, a firefighter said. There was no power in the house.

 

 Farmington officials have responded to buildings with high carbon-monoxide readings, but no one became sick, said Police Chief Paul Melanson, who answered the phone in the emergency operations center set up at the police department Wednesday afternoon.

 

 Canton officials, too, have had to respond to carbon-monoxide detectors sounding. But no one has been sick yet, a dispatcher there said.
