Bristol firefighters battle fire during snow storm

Posted: Updated:

Snow made it difficult for firefighters to quickly get to a house fire in Bristol Thursday afternoon.

Officials said the fire started in the basement of the residence at 53 Blakeslee St. around 2 p.m. The fire spread quickly.

There was no clear path to the home and neighbors had to help firefighters get to the blaze, officials said.

The hydrants in the area were not shoveled out. Fire officials told residents to please remember to shovel around their hydrants.

No injuries were reported, however two people were displaced by the fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
