EASTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A three-alarm fire has destroyed four buildings owned by the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies.

The Hartford Courant reports (https://bit.ly/25u363D) the fire was reported just after 7 p.m. Saturday in a densely wooded area of Eastford.

Fire Chief Gordon Spink says the buildings are a “total loss.” No injuries were reported.

The buildings were used by Yale for forestry training and were located in the Yale Myers Forest, which encompasses nearly 7,800 acres in the northeast corner of Connecticut.

Mark Ashton, director of school forests at Yale, declined to comment.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
