FARMINGTON — Farmington firefighters are investigating a residential fire that broke out Wednesday morning in east Farmington.

Farmington firefighters, police and paramedics responded at 10:55 a.m. to a modular home at 2701 Fox Street near Hannon Drive after receiving reports of the fire.

Farmington Fire Department Deputy Chief David Burke said the fire was "well-involved" when police arrived, and flames were threatening power lines and nearby trees. He said firefighters extinguished the blaze within five to seven minutes of arrival, but the home was significantly damaged.

Burke said no one was injured in the fire, and the homeowner's insurance company would need to determine whether the home was salvageable.

The cause of the fire was unknown Wednesday evening, but Burke said investigators suspect the fire may have started in one of the home's hallways.
