    A family escaped a fire in their home in Rocky Hill early Saturday morning.

    Firefighters responded to the home at 3189 Main Street just after 1 a.m. after family members smelled smoke and saw flames coming from the kitchen area.

    The fire house is just around the corner from the home, so firefighters arrived in just minutes. Firefighters did have some concerns because of the size of the property on which the house sits.

    "It’s a very secluded location. We’ve got about a 500 foot driveway to get up here all uphill and we had to lay out a lot of hose just to guarantee our water supplies up here, said Michael Garrahy, of the Rocky Hill Fire Department.

    It took a few hours for the fire to be completely put out.

    The fire marshal is investigating to determine what started the blaze.
