New London Fire Department was dispatched to a town of Mukwa home for a basement fire. Dispatch was also told the occupant of the home was still inside trying to contain the fire on his own. Fire crews were able to contain the fire to its room of origin and the floor truss system above. The remainder of the home suffered extensive smoke damage. Investigation into the cause has been deemed as not suspicious and early estimated loss figures are around $75,000. One person was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
