As flames ripped through the house, two people jumped to safety from a second story window. There were no injuries reported and the home was completely destroyed.
The call came in at 12:59 a.m. and fire companies were on the scene within 10 minutes, according to East Windsor Fire Company #1 Chief Kevin Brink.
“The flames were probably 15 to 20 feet in the air, the whole house was on fire,” Brink told Patch after the fire. “I was the first fire unit on the scene and the whole house was already fully engulfed in fire, the roof was on fire, the whole house - I mean top to bottom. The people are extremely lucky that they got out, nobody got hurt.”
The majority of the fire was extinguished within 30 minutes and more than 60 firefighters responded to the scene.
