Brookfield firefighters extinguished a blaze at a Candlewood Lake Road home last night. The basement fire was brought under control in a short amount of time. A couple and their young child were displaced by the blaze because of heavy smoke damage to the house.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Brookfield Fire Marshal.
Candlewood Lake Road from Federal Road to Rocky Road was closed for a period of time due to the Fire Department activity. Mutual aid was provided by Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Company, Hawleyville Volunteer Fire Company, and Germantown Volunteer Fire.
