PEMBROKE (CBS) — Crews from the Hanson and Pembroke Fire Departments battled a fire that destroyed a home in Pembroke Tuesday morning.

The call came in around 9:15 a.m. reporting the fire at the single-family home on Route 14.

Pembroke Fire Chief Mike Hill told WBZ-TV’s Mike LaCrosse that everyone got out safely. It was believed that two people lived inside the home.

But Chief Hill said an issue with the water supply hampered their efforts.

“We had a minor issue with a burst hose so our water supply got shut off for a little bit, which allowed the fire to advance quicker than we would like,” he said.

Chief Hill said no injuries were reported.

Route 14 was shut down, and would remain so for a few hours into the afternoon as firefighters worked to put out hot spots.


The home is a total loss, and will be knocked down.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
