An adult male was killed during the fire, he was the only person home at the time of the blaze.

The New Britain Fire Marshal is investigating how the fire started. 

Deputy Chief Scott Morgan said nights like these are the toughest part of the job.

"Every time we have this it takes a little pieces out of us. It affects all of us no matter what, no matter what age, no matter who the person was, it takes a little piece out of you every time you see this," Morgan said.
