A fire struck a house at 448 Grant St., Middletown, at about 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 26.

Two callers reported the house on fire, with heavy smoke coming from the rear of the house.

There were reports of someone trapped inside, but that turned out not to be the case. Firefighters eventually learned the sole occupant was out of town after their search found no one inside.

The fire started in the basement and extended into the first and second floors, according to the Middletown Volunteer Fire Department.

Details about the damage were not immediately available. Firefighters were on the scene for about two hours.
