Cause of Dutch Island house fire being investigated


Multiple fire crews responded to a large structure fire on Dutch Island near Isle of Hope early Monday.

The call went out at 5:30 a.m. to a fully engulfed structure fire on Wild Thistle Lane.

Fire units from Isle of Hope, Thunderbolt and Southside Fire have responded to the scene. When firefighters arrived they found a two-story home with heavy flames coming from the rear.

The home suffered extensive fire, smoke and water damage. Thankfully, no injuries were reported. Neighbors say a man and a woman live in the home and both made it out safe. Neighbors reported helping the couple put water on the fire before fire crews arrived.

The fire is now out. Crews will remain on the scene to monitor hot spots. The cause of the fire is not yet know. However, it is believed to have started in a fire pit in the back of the home that quickly spread.
