A Weymouth home is destroyed after flames fully engulfed the 1.5 story structure Sunday evening.

Weymouth Fire Chief Joseph Davis says a second alarm was struck immediately upon crews arriving at the Carlson Cove house just after 9p.m. “There was heavy fire showing from all doors, all windows,” described Chief Davis

Neighbors first reported there was an explosion at the house. “The neighbors reported a ‘pop!’. It could’ve been an aerosol can or something else inside the building, we’re not sure at this time,” said Chief Davis

However, the Weymouth family who resides at the Carlson Cove house was out-of-state at the time.

The fire is under investigation by the Weymouth Fire Department and the Weymouth Police Department as well as the state fire marshal’s office but Chief Davis notes that a few problems are causing a delay in their investigation, “We’re having some difficulty getting into the building because of all of the debris that was clothing that’s soaked in collapsed floors, so we’re doing it very cautiously.”

One firefighter suffered minor injuries when responding to the Weymouth fire but did not require hospitalization.
