Firefighters extinguish Onset house fire
The Onset Fire Department knocked down a significant fire at 14 North Boulevard early Sunday afternoon which displaced three residents and resulted in serious damage to the home.
Two firefighters were injured on the scene, and have since been treated and released from Tobey Hospital.
The fire was initially called in as a chimney fire.
Captain Ryan Quinn was first on the scene with Engine 2. Seeing the smoke and fire, he called for back-up.
In total, crews used four fire hoses to knock down the blaze within 45 minutes, and were able to contain the blaze to the second floor of the home. About 43 firefighters were on the scene.
None of the residents were injured, and they received help from the Red Cross in finding new shelter.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but is not believed to be suspicious.
The Bourne, Wareham, Carver, and Plymouth Fire Departments assisted on the scene, as did Wareham EMS, Police, and the town building inspector. Station coverage was provided by the Marion, Carver, and Bourne Fire Departments.
