Orleans Fire-Rescue/CWN

EASTHAM – Eastham Fire reports that on Sunday at approximately 09:16 PM, they received a call for a house fire at 555 Great Pond Rd.

The first arriving engine company found an occupied 20ft x 30ft two & half story residential structure with fire showing from the rear outside wall of the home. A working fire assignment was requested. This brought crews from Orleans, Wellfleet, Truro, Brewster, Harwich, and Chatham with crews from Dennis and Yarmouth covering our stations.

The fire originated in the area of the wood stove on the first floor and extended throughout the home. An aggressive interior attack by Eastham crews limited the damage to the structure.

The fire was reported by the residents and they evacuated with the assistance of the Eastham Police Department.

The fire was brought under control in approximately 1 hour of the initial alarm.

At this time the cause appears to be an unintentional, accidental fire with a total loss of approximately $80,000.

Eastham units cleared the scene by approximately 2300 hrs.

No civilian or firefighter injuries occurred while extinguishing the fire
