Fire causes heavy damage to Lyndon Township home

By Lisa Allmendinger

No one was injured, but a small home sustained heavy damage, when fire broke out in a single-family residence near North Lake in Lyndon Township late Friday afternoon.

About 15 firefighters from Chelsea, Dexter and Stockbridge found the lake cabin "about 25 percent involved when we arrived," said Chelsea Fire Capt. Augustine Syrovy.

The cabin, on the 300 block of Wild Goose Lane, was unoccupied, he said, and "smoke was exiting the home anywhere it could when got there and there were flames coming out of a back window."

Both the kitchen and the living room of the small home sustained heavy damage, but firefighters were able to save the bedrooms.

Firefighters had the blaze under control in about 15 minutes, Syrovy said.

Chelsea fire investigators are looking into the cause and estimated monetary amount of damages, but Syrovy said the fire is not believed to be suspicious.
