Beacon Falls home destroyed in fire

The home is on Morning Wood Drive. Fire officials ask drivers to avoid Morning Wood Drive and Kaleas Way until further notice.

BEACON FALLS, Conn. — A Beacon Falls home was destroyed in a fire Friday morning. 

Officials said a firefighter who lived on Morning Wood Drive saw flames coming from a nearby home just after 8 a.m. 

Mutual aid was called in from Naugatuck, Oxford, Bethany, and Seymour to help battle the blaze. 

The bulk of the fire was knocked down within 20 minutes, officials said, fighting it initially from the outside before they could make their way in to douse hot spots. 

No injuries were reported.

The Beacon Falls Fire Marshal's office and the State Fire Marshal's office are investigating.

A GoFundMe has been created to assist the family.
