New details: Fire damages outside of Dennis home

DENNIS – Fire damaged the exterior of a home in Dennis late Sunday afternoon. Firefighters were called to the 200 block of Mayfair Road. The homeowner was able to extinguish most of the fire before they arrived. Investigators are checking if careless disposal of smoking materials may have sparked the fire. No injuries were reported.

Update: Dennis Fire Deputy Chief Robert Brown tells Cape Wide News that the fire department responded to a reported structure fire at 5:41 PM Sunday evening. The occupied house is located at 230 Mayfair Road, had moderate damage to the outside. The fire started in a mulch area which extended to a deck and the side of the house. When firefighters arrived the occupants of the house had applied a garden hose on the fire which knocked it down. Firefighters extinguished the rest and overhauled the remaining hot spots to ensure the fire was out.
The Yarmouth fire department assisted Dennis with an Engine and the Dennis Police assisted with traffic during the incident.

The cause of the fire is under investigation but appears to be careless disposal of a cigarette. There were no reported injuries.
