Plymouth: House damaged by fire deemed total loss

A home on State Road in Plymouth, with an estimated value at around $350,000, that caught fire Monday afternoon has been deemed a “total loss”.

Multiple calls came in to the Plymouth Fire Department at about 1:00 p.m. Monday, of a house on fire at 2432 State Road–not 2428 as was originally reported.

A WATD reporter at the scene reported flames shooting through the roof and out the sides of the building.

Plymouth Deputy Fire Chief Michael Young confirmed that State Fire Marshal’s office was called to the scene to determine the cause of the fire, but it is not believed to be suspicious.

Two family members were taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.

Two others battling the fire, a firefighter suffering from exhaustion and a civilian with smoke inhalation, were also taken to the hospital.

Two family pets, a dog and two cats, died in the fire.

Fire crews did not clear the scene until midnight–structural problems made it difficult to check for hot spots.
