WOODBRIDGE >> A four-alarm fire that caused extensive damage to the Jewish Community Center of Greater New Haven and injured two firefighters has been ruled accidental in an initial investigation, although an investigation continues into what caused the fire, according to an update released via Facebook by the Woodbrige Fire Department. The JCC remains closed and may remain that way for six to 12 months, JCC Chief Executive Officer Judy Diamondstein said Wednesday. Many of the JCC\u2019s daily activity offerings, such as pre-kindergarten and sports are continuing in other locations. The Fire Department\u2019s release says \u201cWith the assistance of the Department of Public Protection Fire and Explosive Investigation Unit and one of their State Police Detectives with an Accelerant Detection K-9, we have ruled out an intentional fire.\u201d The short release goes on to say, \u201cWhile the investigation is ongoing, we believe the fire started in the sauna area located in the men\u2019s locker room. If anyone has any information, please contact Woodbridge Fire Marshal Joseph Cappucci at 203-389-3445 or email@example.com.\u201d The fire Dec. 5 at the JCC, 360 Amity Road, started around 3:30 p.m. in the area of the locker rooms and men\u2019s sauna. The staff was able to evacuate approximately 300 people in the building. Two Woodbridge firefighters were injured, but are expected to make a full recovery. Diamondstein said there was extensive water and smoke damage and some of the basic work to restoring the facility can\u2019t begin until March. She said the JCC has \u201ca very special community,\u201d that is understanding of the situation. She said the 100,000-square-foot building has about two miles of ducts alone that need cleaning. She said the lower level of the building had about six to eight inches of water once the fire was over and the new basketball court was ruined, as well as the aerobics studio. She said the building as it is now \u201cisn\u2019t safe\u201d to be occupied, so in addition to relocating activities, they are relocating offices. \u201cIt\u2019s a mammoth, mammoth job here,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s going to take a village.\u201d Some 77 pre-kindergarten students and 40 in an after school program have been moved to B\u2019Nai Jacob Synagogue. Officials say they are close to settling on a location in town for the fitness center, have moved their basketball program to Hopkins School and Beecher Road School, swim lessons to the Orange Community Center pool and racquet ball to Quinnipiac University.
