MIDDLEFIELD, CT (WFSB) - Crews are investigating a house fire that broke out overnight in Middlefield, officials said. 

The fire started around 2 a.m. and fully engulfed the home, causing serious damage. The fire has been knocked down. 

Officials say nobody was injured and nobody was in the home at the time of the fire. 

Mutual aid was called in from Durham, Middletown, Westfield, and Killingworth. 

It was challenging for the firefighters to establish a water supply because there were no fire hydrants in the area. 

Firefighters used water from a pond at Lyman Orchards, which is across the road. 

The Connecticut State Police and Connecticut State Fire and Explosion investigation unit are assisting with the investigation. 

Part of Reeds Gap Road is closed as a result of the fire.
