The fire started around 6:15 p.m. on Barber Hill Road, in the Broad Brook section of town. That fire department requested South Windsor to help with the fire. Officials say while fire crews were able to get on scene quick, by the time they got there, the house was fully involved.

Additional mutual aid was called in from Waterhouse Point Fire Department, Ellington Volunteer Fire Department, Somers Fire Department, Town of Vernon Fire Department, and the Enfield Fire Department.

No injuries were reported, and firefighters credit the working smoke detectors.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by both the Town and State Fire Marshal's office.
