Crews in Hanson were called to the scene of a structure fire Tuesday night.

Fire officials say the fire was reported at 45 Milford St. shortly before 7:30 p.m.

Upon arrival firefighters found that occupants had exited the house and crews encountered heavy fire throughout the structure.

Officials say that there was excessive clutter in the house which made it difficult for firefighters mounting an aggressive interior attack and contributed to a lengthy overhaul process.

Halifax, Hanover, Pembroke, and Whitman provided mutual aid.

The scene was cleared shortly after midnight and no injuries were reported.

Officials say the house is uninhabitable after sustaining extensive fire, smoke and water damage with the home’s occupants being assisted by the Red Cross.

The incident is currently under investigation by the Hanson Fire Department, Hanson Police Department and the Massachusetts State Fire Marshal’s Office.
