Fire destroys home on Hillside Drive; residents unhurt

A two-alarm fire last night in the 1200 block of Hillside Drive destroyed the two-story waterfront home of three men and caused an estimated $165,000 damage.

No injuries were reported.

Fire Department spokesman Capt. Gary Sheckells said no one was home when the fire broke out in a first-floor apartment at around 10:20 p.m., about 30 minutes after the last of three tenants had left the house.

A second-floor apartment was unoccupied.

Within minutes, the fire enveloped the dwelling, causing the second alarm to be sounded at 10:31 p.m.

Nearly 40 firefighters from several fire stations brought the fire under control in less than an hour.

Captain Sheckells said the fire appeared to be accidental but its cause remains under investigation.
