Fire Damages 3-Story Home in Torrington

A house in Torrington is damaged after a fire ripped through it on Saturday morning.

Firefighters say they received an automated alarm about a fire at 500 Ledge Drive within the Lakeridge Condominium Community around 8:11 a.m. At the same time firefighters were responding to the fire, police officers say they were responding to the same location for a burglar alarm.

When police arrived, they found heavy fire on all three floors of the single-family house and told firefighters that the house was "fully involved." Firefighters were forced to fight the fire from the outside of the home because there was structural damage, fire officials said. Nobody was home at the time of the fire.

Firefighters from Drakeville, Torringford, Torrington, Harwinton and Winsted were called in to provide mutual aid.

Eversource was also called and disconnected power to the house. The American Red Cross is assisting the homeowner.

No injuries were reported at the scene. The Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
