Submitted

Magnolia – Just after 4:00 Sunday afternoon firefighters from the Magnolia Fire Company along with crews from the Camden-Wyoming and Felton Fire Companies responded to the 200 block of Melissa Street in Alexanders Village for reports of a residential structure fire.

Upon their arrival, crews reported smoke and heavy fire showing from the front of the home. A neighbor that provided the video below said she believed the fire started in the garage and spread to the kitchen. Chief Deputy State Fire Marshal B. Scott Bullock says the occupants of the home called 911 to report a fire in the garage. He also confirmed that the fire involved the attached garage with extension into the home.

“I mean it went from seeing some flames in the kitchen window to fully involved as you see in the video in minutes”, said the neighbor.

Bullock said Deputy State Fire Marshals responded to the scene to investigate the cause of the fire, which remains under investigation. Damages are estimated at $100,000

All occupants of the home made it out prior to the firefighter’s arrival. No injuries reported.

The fire was placed under control shortly before 5:00 pm.
