Just before 9 p.m., members of the Orange Volunteer Fire Department were on the scene of a very active house fire at 467 Ridgeview Road.

Word is that it was a real inferno.

The Woodbridge Volunteer Fire Department covered the town of Orange while our firefighters battled the blaze.

Stay clear of the area if you can and let them do their jobs. — The area is roped off.

NEVER run over fire hoses laid out in the road.

By 9:10 p.m. it appeared that the fire was knocked down, but the smoke was still visible from the Ranch-style home.

Neighbors said the whole area of the home where the bedroom once was is gone, and they were relieved to see their neighbor walking around unharmed. Click HERE for an unedited video shot by a neighbor.

We will have more information after we talk to the Fire Marshal.

It was a tough start to the Holiday weekend for one homeowner in Orange on Saturday, May 23, as a fire broke out in the home on Derby-Milford Road right off of Grassy Hill Road this morning.

Plumes of black smoke could be seen from several towns away and the smell spread through the town of Orange as fire sirens blared through the neighborhoods while trucks were en route to the blaze.

Long after the fire began flames continued to shoot through the roof as firefighters  battled it from the ground. Even though there was a fire hydrant nearby on Grassy Hill Road, the structure could not be saved.

Grassy Hill Road was blocked off Clark Lane.

At around 1 p.m. the fire hose was switched from the Grassy Hill hydrant to a different one on West River Street.

By 2 p.m. some fire personnel had left the scene, but the work wasn’t over yet.

Our thoughts go out to the homeowner who kept this beautiful home and property well manicured and pristine. We can’t imagine how you are feeling with this loss.
