Fire At Well-known West Hartford Restaurant

Firefighters battled flames at the A.C. Petersen Farms restaurant in West Hartford this afternoon.

Park View Wine and Spirits owner Ashwin Naran described the view from the other side of Park Road.

“Flames coming out of the roof of A.C. Petersen, and smoke, black smoke billowing out,” Naran said.

Naran said the flames and smoke seemed to be in the back of the building.

The restaurant is well-known in town for its ice cream, and as a neighborhood hang-out.
