SHELTON — No one was injured in a fire Thursday that damaged the attic and the upper floor of a Mohegan Road home, fire officials said.

Deputy Fire Chief Paul Wilson said crews from companies 1, 3 and 5 responded to the home about 12:20 p.m. on a report of a possible bathroom fire. Those responding, he said, observed smoke coming from the roof- and the fire was determined to have started in the attic.

As crews extinguished the fire, Wilson said additional members proceeded to check for fire extension and ensured nobody was still in the home. He said the some 25 firefighters got the blaze under control within 15 minutes.

The fire marshal’s office is investigating the cause. Wilson said he was unsure if the home was habitable at this time.
