OXFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — A fire that heavily damaged a home in Oxford was an accident, the fire chief said.
The fire happened early Tuesday morning on Thorson Road.
A mattress near the fireplace caught on fire and the flames quickly spread.
Thankfully no one was injured because of the fire.
It took firefighters extra time to put out the flames because the two hydrants needed for water were located quite a distance away. The freezing cold temperatures made things especially difficult for the firefighters.
