The West Hartford Fire Department was able to quickly extinguish a blaze Monday morning before it caused substantial damage to a home on Westfield Road, just east of West Hartford Center.

According to Chief Greg Priest, crews were notified at 11:26 a.m. about a brush fire that had extended to the deck and the siding of a home on Westfield Road, near the intersection with Farmington Avenue.

The first unit arrived at 11:30 a.m., Priest said, and he praised the great work of crews who were able to quickly knock down the fire before it substantially impacted the interior of the structure.

The fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire, which began as a brush fire on private property, Priest said.

There were no injuries.
