Milford, Conn. (WTNH) — A Milford family is displaced after fire ripped through their home Monday afternoon.

At 2:15pm, firefighters responded to several 9-1-1 calls reporting a house fire at 28 Underhill Road. Upon arrival, fire crews discovered large flames coming out of the rear of the home and beginning to extend to the detached garage. One crew battled the immediate house fire while another was assigned to protect a neighboring house in close proximity.

The home owner was able to exit the house without any injuries, and no firefighters were hurt battling the blaze. After the fire was extinguished, the home owner was able to retrieve a few belongings, but the extensive damage to the first and second floors as well as the garage have made the property uninhabitable.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined. The Milford Fire Marshal’s office is continuing their investigation.
