Another home in Newtown has been destroyed by fire. All 5 of Newtown's volunteer fire companies responded to a report of black smoke and flames coming from a Toddy Hill Road home on Friday. It took less than 40 minutes to knock down the fire, which spread from the garage area into the full dwelling, but firefighters remained on scene for another hour to extinguish some hotspots. Mutual aid was received from Southbury, who sent a tanker and a crew to the scene. Stepney provided coverage at Botsford’s firehouse. Newtown Volunteer Ambulance Corps also provided a crew for coverage.
