Destructive Northfield fire is under investigation
Litchfield Fire Marshal Samuel Kinkade and the state police fire and explosives investigative unit are investigating a fire that destroyed a vacant raised ranch at 164 Campville Road in Northfield on Thursday night.
Firefighters from Northfield, East Litchfield, Litchfield, Thomaston, Bantam and Harwinton responded to the blaze that was reported at 10:15 p.m. The fire was brought under control quickly but firefighters were dousing hot spots until 2:30 a.m.
The house had been vacant for at least a year after it was acquired by Homebridge Financial Services in a foreclosure proceeding in 2016.
