Fire Destroys 200-year-old Home
A fire on Dover Road destroyed a 200-year-old home Monday morning.
The State Fire Marshal is currently investigating the cause of a fire on Dover Road in Westwood that caused extensive damage to a 200-year-old home Monday morning.
The rear of the house was the first to ignite before the blaze spread to other parts of the unoccupied home and burned for several hours before nearby residents called for help.
"The fire was in the first and second floors and through the attic upon our arrival," Westwood Fire Chief, William Scoble, said.
Scoble said the home will like be demolished after fire crews clear the area.
