2nd Plymouth home to go up in flames in the past two days

·1 min read

A home in Plymouth was destroyed early Sunday when a fire tore through the residence. The family was not home at the time of the fire, officials said.

Firefighters were called to Outlook Circle just after 6:30 a.m. for reports of heavy flames throughout the home. A second alarm was struck to provide additional relief due to the high temperatures.

No injuries were reported, however, the home sustained significant damage and was deemed a total loss.

This comes 2 days after a fire tore through another Plymouth home on Thompson Circle. Officials said the house was deemed uninhabitable.

The residents were not home when the fire broke out, and no injuries were reported.

“I want to acknowledge the great work by our firefighters who stepped up this weekend to safely extinguish these two fires in extreme heat conditions without any injuries or heat-related issues,” Plymouth Fire Department Chief Neil Foley said. “Throughout this heat wave, our members have worked extra shifts to ensure that those on shift have relief and their dedication and hard work have shown through, especially in these two incidents.”

The cause of both fires remains under investigation.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates as more information becomes available.
