An Easton home was destroyed by a fire early yesterday morning, which started in the garage. Police arrived first and reported that a large portion of the house was involved. Two occupants were alerted by a smoke detector around 2:45am and made it safely out of the house.
Portions of the home not directly impacted by the fire sustained smoke, heat and water damage.
Stepney fire provided station coverage, Fairfield, Westport, Redding, Botsford and Weston all responded to the scene and assisted in different capacities. The bulk of the fire was knocked down fairly quickly with units staying on scene for two hours to overhaul and check for hot spots.
