ELLINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

Multiple cars caught fire outside of a home in Ellington Sunday morning.

State police said five cars caught fire on Westview Terrace around 2:30 a.m.

Ellington firefighters said there were originally three cars on fire, but a fourth fire caught fire while they were waiting for more trucks.

The home did not catch fire, but the siding of the house melted as a result of the incident.

It took half an hour to put out the fire.

The street is closed and police have called it a crime scene.

Six people were sleeping inside the home at the time of the fire, but no one was injured.

They said the cars are theirs.

Investigators from the town's fire marshal and the state fire marshal are here

They are investigating whether or not it is arson.
