WOODSTOCK, CT (WFSB) – Four people were hospitalized and four dogs were killed when a 300-year-old farm caught fire in Woodstock overnight.
Mutual aid from a dozen nearby fire departments responded to the three-story home on Route 169 shortly after midnight on June 15.
Woodstock Fire Marshal Dick Baron told Channel 3 that four people were to be taken to hospital for smoke inhalation. One of the victims also needed treatment for burns.
Four dogs also died in the blaze.
When firefighters first arrived, they reported seeing heavy fire.
The Massachusetts Dudley Fire Department posted photos of the blaze on social media.
He said tankers were needed to provide a continuous flow of water as there were no hydrants in the area.
Baron said the fire started on the first floor and went through the walls to the second floor and the attic.
He said the house, which is 300 years old, was deemed unsafe.
The American Red Cross helps those who lived there.
Investigators are still trying to determine the causes of the fire.
