The new Eastham water system is not on line in the neighborhood so firefighters had to run a tanker shuttle from Great Pond. Mutual aid from several towns was called to facilitate the shuttle. Smoke from the fire blanketed the neighborhood and drifted across a portion of Route 6 for a time. The Red Cross is assisting the displaced occupants. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
