A Winsted home went up in flames Sunday afternoon, police said.

The fire at 23 Thibault Avenue began shortly after noon on Sunday. Five adults and five children escaped uninjured.

The scene remained active well into the evening. Winsted police said the damage was extensive and the house is now structurally unsafe.

Police said that although the fire was contained to one house, the heat of the flames melted the siding on both neighboring homes.

The Torrington Fire Deparment sent a ladder truck to help fight the flames, Torrington fire officials said.

Winsted police said the State Fire Marshal is taking over the investigation. Fire officials were still on scene around 5:45 p.m.
