The West Hartford Fire Department responded to a fire in a single-family home Monday night, finding the living room ablaze when they arrived around 6:30 p.m., Battalion Chief William Kall said.
The fire at 1 Fox Meadow Ln. was reported by a neighbor, Kall said. He said that none of the residents were home at the time the fire started.
Four companies responded, Kall said, and the fire was brought under control within about 20 minutes. Units remained on the scene for several hours for an overhaul of the structure.
“The living room was completely burned,” Kall said, and there was smoke and heat damage throughout the rest of the single-story residence.
One firefighter sustained minor injuries due to a fall, Kall said, and is being evaluated at a local hospital. The fall was not weather-related, he said.
There were no other injuries.
The cause of the fire could be immediately determined, Kall said. The fire marshal was still on the scene Monday night and the incident is under investigation.
