    STAMFORD, CT — A downtown blaze was quickly doused by firefighters at a Landmark Square building Wednesday morning.

    Welders were working in Building 2, on Atlantic Street behind Blackstones Steakhouse, around 7:30 a.m. when a hot spark apparently dropped, causing some insulation to catch fire, said Deputy Chief Tom Gloersen.

    Before the fire department arrived, the welders used fire extinguishers, nearly knocking out the blaze.
