The fire happened Sunday morning at a home on Route 2.
Everyone managed to get out of the home safely, but the fire did major damage: burning through the roof from one end of the building to the other.
The house was across from the East Dixfield fire station, but water had to be hauled in by fire trucks from Dixfield, Jay, and Wilton.
There has been no word yet on what caused the fire. The state fire marshal’s office is investigating.
