NEW INFO: Vacant Plymouth Home Catches Fire

Firefighters said they got an early morning call to a house fire in Plymouth, but the home was a total loss before they even arrived.

Washington County dispatchers said crews got the call to 103 Cranberry Street in Plymouth at 4:11 Friday morning.

Plymouth Volunteer Fire Department Chief, Joey Thompson, said as soon as crews arrived they saw flames coming from windows and knew the home was a total loss.

The Chief said it appears the home was vacant and no one was hurt as firefighters battled the blaze.

According to Thompson, the house had power and utility crews had to cut the lines to the house before firefighters could tackle the flames. Thompson said that prolonged the fire fight to an hour and a half.

Dominion Power said no other customers along Cranberry Street were in the dark as crews cut power to the home on fire.

Chief Thompson said they still do not know what caused the blaze.
