    An investigation is underway into a fire at Soma Technology in Bloomfield early Monday morning and police said it might have been set.

    Officials said the alarm company called the fire department to respond to 166 Highland Park Drive just before 3 a.m. because water was flowing and firefighters found two trailers that were backed up to the building on fire.

    A front window of the building was smashed in and there was extensive fire and smoke damage to the back of the building, police said.

    “The primary damage is to the tractor-trailers and the equipment in the back. There’s a little bit that just got inside the building, enough, and actually the fire sprinklers knocked down the fire in the building and actually saved them a lot of damage,” Roger Nelson, the fire marshal, said Monday
