Firefighters from several communities are battling a house fire this morning on the bank of the White River in the northeastern corner of Pomfret.
The fire at a one-and-a-half story residence on White River Lane, which sits on the western bank of the White River opposite the village of West Hartford, was discovered shortly after 10 a.m.
Fire engines from North Pomfret, Teago, Hartford, Sharon, and South Royalton are on the scene drafting water from the nearby river.
Initial reports from the first arriving fire crews reported flames up the back of the house on both floors. There is no word on any injuries or whether anyone was home when the fire broke out.
Firefighters work to set up a ladder to go up to second floor of the home to break and vent windows.
