The two story single family residence has substantial damage, according to the Bloomfield Fire Chief on scene. Although the exact cause is yet undetermined it is likely that the blaze started in the furnace area.
The fire crews arrived on scene and quickly had the fire under control, however the furnace and chimney were located in the middle of the home which allowed the flames to spread from the center outward and upward.
The family was home at the time of the blaze but were able to escape unharmed.
