Crews Investigate Cause of Granby House Fire That Injured 1 Person

One person is injured after a house fire in Granby on Tuesday morning and police have closed a road while crews work to get it under control.

Police said crews were called to Lost Acres Road around 8:20 a.m. after getting a report of a house fire.

When officers arrived, a single-family home was fully involved in fire and the resident was able to escape on his own, authorities added. He sustained a very minor hand injury, police said.

Firefighters were forced to fight the fire from the exterior of the home because police said there was what sounded like ammunition and possibly fuel tanks with propane inside the house that were cooking off.

"There was obviously some type of material cooking off in the fire, making a great deal of noise so we had to keep the safety perimeter and then the fire department was limited to external operations," said Granby Police Captain William Tyler.

Multiple other departments were called to help fight the fire.

Lost Acres Road is currently closed. There is no word on when the road will reopen.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
