There were no injuries in a residential fire at 39 Castle View Drive in Chester on Thursday morning and, but the family went to a clinic as a precaution.
The Chester Hose Company responded to the two-alarm fire early on Thursday morning and departments from Deep River, Essex and Haddam-Killingworth provided mutual aid.
Dozens of firefighters helped contain and knock down the fire in 30 minutes.
Deputy Chief James Grzybowski said the cause is still under investigation.
The snow was not a factor, Grzybowski said, but the department had to bring in extra equipment because the closest fire hydrant was more than 2,000 feet away.
