“We had fire coming out of every window on the front side of the house,” Groton Fire Chief Steele McCurdy told reporters, “so firefighters were unable to make entry due to those fire conditions.”
Two adults were “unaccounted for,” according to McCurdy, and both were later found dead on the first floor.
It’s unclear who made the 911 call. The house is surrounded by woods with no direct neighbors in the area.READ MORE: Service Resumes On Green Line Hours After Crash, Operator On Leave
