Controlled Burn Of "Energetic Material" Expected In Chicopee Tonight

Chicopee Mayor John Vieu says that he is hopeful there will be a controlled burn of what has been described as an “energetic” substance that was found at a home on Summer Street.

Officials evacuated about a dozen homes in the neighborhood as a precaution.

The “energetic” materials were discovered during a fire that was put out at the home on Wednesday.

The mayor will not say what an “energetic” substance means. He doesn’t say why they won’t explain what it is.

He only says that the material was found in the yard. Summer Street is in the same general vicinity as the School Department building.

The Mayor says there is no danger to the city.
