BERLIN — All four town fire companies responded to a house fire Friday night on Kensington Road.

The fire was reported at 288 Kensington Road at approximately 6:30 p.m. 

Upon arrival, firefighters found that the fire had already been extinguished, leaving burnt siding and insulation. Fire officials did not have any other information about how the fire extinguished. 

According to a post on the Berlin Volunteer Fire Department’s website, the fire had not extended “to the interior or attic” of the home.  

Firefighters removed portions of the burnt siding and insulation to verify that there were no “hot spots” Fans were set up to ventilate the home. 

The fire marshal’s office is investigating.
