Fire_719Pearl_2Monday’s house fire at 718 Pearl Street “was a stubborn fire” according the Plymouth Fire Chief Rod Miller.

The Plymouth Fire Department was called at 6:45 Monday evening to the south side home that was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived on the scene.  The high winds were a factor in battling the blaze and caused fire crews from three departments to be on the scene for over 8 hours.

About an hour after firefighters left the scene they were called back about 4 a.m. for a rekindle.

Fire Chief Miller said the fire started on the first level at the rear of the home.  He said the fire got into the attic area and with so many different roof lines it was difficult to get to the blaze.

Firefighters were back at the home Tuesday afternoon in the attic area again putting out a few hot spots.

Next week Plymouth’s Fire Inspector will investigate the scene and work to determine a cause.

Fire Chief Rod Miller said the home and its contents was a major loss.
