Responders fight fires in 3 Onset houses

Aug 17, 2017

A fire was reported in a two-story house on Bedard Road in Onset around 3:20 p.m. on Thursday and the fire spread to two other houses within an hour, according to emergency broadcasts.

The houses, located next to Lopes Park off Onset Ave, were vacant, neighbors said.

"The kids go up there to drink and smoke their weed and party up there," said Sue Mello, a neighbor. Mello said her neighbor heard people in one of the houses early Thursday morning.

Plymouth, Bourne, Carver, and Marion responders joined Onset in Lopes Park to deal with the spreading flames. Responders had to cut through the brush at the edge of the field to access the houses.

No additional information is available at this time.
