LEBANON, CT (WFSB) -

Firefighters in Lebanon said a home was destroyed in a fire Saturday afternoon.

Officials said they responded to a home on Resevior Road at 1:30 p.m.

The home was fully engulfed when crews arrived on the scene, according to firefighters.

They said the owners were not home at the time of the fire and have been contacted.

Several towns responded to the scene.

Officials said putting out the fire was difficult because they had to truck in water from a local reservoir and the home was deep in the woods.

Officials said they had responded to the home earlier in the day due to a medical call.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
