BLOOMFIELD, CT (WFSB) - Fire tore through a home in Bloomfield early Friday morning.

Crews were called to an address on Tunxis Avenue around 3:30 a.m.

Two people were hurt when they jumped from a second-floor window during the fire, firefighters said. It was too hot to go out through the first floor. The injuries, however, were described as minor.

They also said that smoke detectors were able to wake them up so they could get out.

The damage to the home was extensive.

A Channel 3 crew was able to see damage to a garage and the home.

Neighbors said they were praying for the family.

“It’s devastating. I’m friendly with them. I know who they are,” said Roger Nelson, a neighbor. “It’s tough. You lose all your stuff, your valuables, things you collected over the years, keepsakes and things. By the looks of that house, it’s going to have to be pretty much gutted.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

A fundraiser has been started to help those displaced from the fire. You can find it here.
