Fire engulfs this large contemporary style home at 27 Abbott Rd in Ellington, CT., Sunday, April 29, 2012. The fire was blowing out of the rear enclosed porch (on my arrival) before a large flash over consumed the house. The house is new construction but the fire had already consumed much of the house before Ellington Fire Department. was on scene. Two occupants and the family dog escaped the house prior to the fire Department arrival, so this was an exterior operation all the way, Strong winds caused a fairly large brush fire behind house into the wood line. Vernon, Crystal Lake, Tolland and South Windsor fire departments were on scene assisting the Ellington Fir Department..Check out pictures of the EFD trying to save the house.
