WASHINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

A massive fire is under investigation in Washington.

Investigators said it broke out on Sunday at a home on Caramel Hill Road.

They said it appeared to have started along the outside of the home following a power surge.

Two people were home at the time and were able to get out safely.

However, the fire chief said the people lost everything.

"The property owners are people who've grown up in town," said Chief Mark Showalter, Washington Fire Department. "We know them. [That] makes it very difficult. The good thing is we have a lot of support for them."

Firefighters from six departments responded to help fight the blaze.
