A two-alarm blaze broke out at a one-and-a-half-story home in Orange Wednesday night, fire officials said.
Firefighters saw flames coming from the wood-frame house at 39 West Main St. when they arrived at 5:50 p.m., said Fire Captain Mark Fortier. The family was home when the fire began, but no one was injured, he said.
“The house will have to be inspected before the family is let back in,” he said.
Despite the falling snow, firefighters didn’t have any significant weather-related issues in containing the fire, Fortier said. The blaze was under control by 7:20 p.m., and did not spread to any nearby homes.
No information about damage or cause of fire were immediately available.
