ENFIELD, CT (WGGB/WSHM) - One person is without a home after a fire tore through their Belle Avenue home Sunday evening.

According to Mark Zarcaro of the Enfield Fire Department, firefighters were dispatched to 8 Belle Avenue around 6:00 p.m. Sunday evening after a neighbor called saying that they saw black smoke emitting from the house.

"Upon arrival," Zarcaro tells us. "There was a report of a working fire, and crews got to work. I would say around forty minutes it was under control."

Thankfully, no one was home at the time the fire broke out.

The person that resides at 8 Belle Avenue, Zarcaro added, will have to look for another means of shelter tonight.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Enfield Fire Department.
