Firefighters are battling a fire at 264 Mount Parnassus Road, an abandoned home in East Haddam, this morning.

The two-alarm fire broke out just before 3 a.m. Someone who was passing by noticed the smoke.

By the time firefighters arrived, fire had already spread through most of the house.

The house has been abandoned for a while, officials said, and crews are trying to figure out exactly how it started.

Luckily no one was hurt, but there were challenges.

One was that the driveway was covered in snow. There are no hydrants in this area so firefighters had to shuttle in water and ensure that it didn't freeze because of the cold temperatures.

Firefighters expect to be at the scene for several more hours and they investigate the cause.

This is also affecting traffic and drivers are slowly getting by.
