EASTHAMFrom Eastham Fire: On March 25, 2023 at approximately 1:36 PM, the Eastham Fire Department responded to a call for a house fire at 10 Hideaway Ln.

The homeowner attempted to put the fire out with an extinguisher and water prior to the arrival of the fire department. She was able to get her dogs into her car to safety.

First arriving units found heavy fire on the front side of the home extending to the second floor. Power lines were arcing and burning which prevented crews from accessing the main body of fire. An aggressive interior attack with 2 hose lines knocked the fire down in approximately 45 minutes. The home was a total loss. The homeowner was transported to Cape Cod Hospital for smoke inhalation. There were no firefighter injuries.
Mutual aid from Orleans, Wellfleet, Brewster, Harwich, Yarmouth and Chatham assisted at the scene. Crews from Hyannis and Dennis covered the Eastham station.
Crews remained on scene extinguishing hot spots for approximately 3 hours.
Eastham units cleared the scene by approximately 1600 hrs.
The fire origin appears to be accidental and electrical in nature.
Property loss estimated at $500,000.
