A blaze ripped through a home in Brookfield early Saturday morning.
The call came into the fire department around 3 a.m. this morning. When the fire department arrived, the home was completely engulfed in flames.
The home, along with the garage, is a total loss.
A neighbor says that they awoke to the smell of smoke. She is close friends with the homeowners and says they were able to make it out safely. The fire chief confirms this.
Extra water to battle the blaze and hot spots is coming in tankers from neighboring towns since there are no hydrants in the area. Newtown and New Milford assisted on the scene.
The fire is still under investigation and a cause has not yet been determined.
