SOUTHINGTON – Firefighters battled a house fire on Clark Street Wednesday morning.
The fire was reported around 10:10 a.m. at 354 Clark St. When firefighters arrived, flames were visible in the front and back of the one-story, wood frame house, Fire Marshal James Paul said. No one was home at the time and there were no reported injuries.
Firefighters extinguished the blaze and had to cut holes to check for hot spots. The cause is under investigation, Paul said. The home will be uninhabitable due to significant damage throughout The owner, who was at the home by afternoon, will not need assistance from Red Cross.
The Meriden, Cheshire, New Britain and Plainville fire departments responded to a request for mutual aid, Paul said.
The single family house south of Meriden-Waterbury Turnpike, near the Cheshire town line, was built in 1951, according to town records.
