1 Hurt in Bethlehem House Fire

One person was taken to the hospital with burns after a fire in Bethlehem Tuesday, according to the fire marshal.

Fire Marshal Kenneth LeClerc said a passerby called in a fire at 33 Porter Hill Road around 12:30 p.m. When firefighters arrived they found a male burn victim in the front yard. He was taken to Waterbury Hospital for treatment and his condition was not immediately clear.

No other humans were home, though some pets remain missing, according to LeClerc. The damage to the home is significant.

A business operates out of the home, officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
