    Firefighters from several towns battled an early-morning cottage fire on Thursday on the grounds of the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in the Falls Village section of Canaan.

    Fire officials said a woman was inside the cottage when the fire broke out, but she was able to run to another cottage to call for help. She was not injured.

    The official cause of the blaze is under investigation, but fire investigators believe a candle left on a dresser inside the cottage started the fire.
