Firefighters from several departments responded to Handel Road in West Stafford after a fire started in a vacant home and caused the house to collapse.
The fire was reported just before 1 a.m. West Stafford Fire Chief Joe Lorenzetti, who said he lives just a few minutes away, found the 2,000 square foot home engulfed when he arrived.
“The house was a total loss on arrival, so rather than risk injuries to personnel or damaging equipment, it was basically a wet down operation,” Lorenzetti said.
It took around three hours for firefighters to put out the fire.
No one was hurt and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
