Canton house destroyed in fire
CANTON- The fire marshal is investigating after a fire destroyed a two-story home on Silvermine Acres early Thursday morning. Neighbors called firefighters after seeing flames shooting from the roof of the house.
Fire Chief Richard Hutchings says no one was home when the fire started just after midnight. He also says water supply became an issue for firefighters because there were no hydrants nearby. Nearby fire departments including Simsbury were called in to help with the water supply. According to the chief, the house has significant damage and is likely a total loss.
