Dozens of firefighters from around Fairfield County battled a large house fire in Westport Saturday afternoon. 

Officials say the fire appears to have started on the second floor of the Saugatuck Road home. No one was home at the time.

Firefighters from six surrounding towns helped with the blaze due to its size and the hot weather.
