Fire destroyed a house on Gifford Lane in Bozrah overnight and flames sparked up again on Monday morning.

The fire started around 10 p.m. on Sunday. 

Officials are still investigating the cause, but believe the fire began in the basement near a wood-burning stove.

Two residents smelled smoke in the basement and tried to put out the fire, but could not keep up with the flames.

They were able to get out of the house, but fire gutted the residence and melted the siding.

Firefighters were able to knock down the flames and get the situation under control, but fire started up again inside some installation near a window on the first floor on Monday morning and spread.

The main challenge firefighters faced was getting down to the house, which is a very remote, wooded area.
