wellingreeSOUTH DENNIS – Around 5:05 p.m. Saturday the Dennis Fire Department responded to reports of a structure fire at 18 Wellingtree Drive. Upon arrival crews found dark smoke pouring from a room at the back of the house. The fire was quickly knocked down. Early reports from the scene indicate that a fish tank in the room might have leaked, shorting out the pump system and causing the smoky fire.
