MARLBORO (CBS) -- A Marlboro family was not home on Sunday when a fire destroyed their house.
No one was hurt, but one or more pets were inside when a fire ripped through the home on Parmenter Road.
Getting water to the house was a big problem.
"The closet fire hydrant is a few thousand feet down the street," Marlboro Fire Chief James Fortin said. "We had heavy fire coming in on the roof and the fire was on all floors."
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
