On arrival of the Assistant Chief minutes later he reported this 2 1/2 wood frame house heavily involved in fire. The first due engine laid in and stretched a 2 1/2 to knock down fire. Firefighters used multiple handlines and a defensive attack from ladder truck to control this fire. Mutual aid was called from nearby Wallingford to the scene, along with Prospect and Bethany to standby. All occupants of the home made it out safe and no injuries were reported.
