OXFORD, CT – At approximately 7:44pm on February 3, 2023, the Oxford Fire Department was dispatched to Jensen Farm Road for the reported house fire. First companies arriving on scene found a raging wind-driven fire in a large two-story private dwelling. Members dealt with temps in the single digits (6 degrees F and much lower with wind chill), causing frozen hydrants and massive water supply issues, as well as a heavy wind that just compounded the night’s difficulties. The fire escalated to a 2nd alarm which brought multiple mutual aid departments to the scene as well as for station coverage during the incident. The family of four that resides at this structure was not at home at the time of the fire.
