Several fire crews responded to a house fire in Williamston on Agate Way. Fire officials tell 6 News that they believe the fire started in the garage but are still trying to figure out how the fire started. Meridian Fire Dept., NIESA, Meridian Police Dept., Mason Fire Dept., the Michigan State Police, and Consumers Energy got to the scene around 3 p.m.
They had to bring in multiple tankers because there are no fire hydrants in the neighborhood.
A man who lives in the home says he and his wife were sleeping in their room when they heard a knock at the door, and it was the neighbor telling them their house was on fire. The car in front of the home also caught fire
It took nearly 2 hours to put the fire out, leaving only two sides of the home. Several neighbors say they could see the smoke from miles away.
Others nearby also say this is the third house in the neighborhood that’s caught fire. Thankfully in this huge loss, everyone was able to get out safely.
