Fire crews from Prospect, Bethany and Cheshire continue to remain on the scene of an early morning house fire.
The fire broke out at a home on Waterbury Road early Friday morning.
Officials said the fire started in the basement of the home, but had worked its way through the entire home and was shooting out of the roof upon their arrival.
The homeowner was rushed to an area hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation, officials said.
There is no word on the homeowner's condition at this time.
