MILFORD — One person was killed during a fire at a home on East Rutland Street Tuesday evening, multiple outlets reported.

Crews were called to the scene of the single-family home just after 7 p.m., a fire official told the TV station WTNH.

Firefighters went inside the home to fight the blaze, but the fire forced them to retreat back outside. When firefighters returned to search the home, they located the person inside deceased, the outlet reported.
