Fire burns roof off house

By Lisa Carolin

Seven local fire departments helped put out a house fire this morning near the intersection of North Territorial Road and Huron River Drive.

According to Ed Root of the Dexter Area Fire Department, in addition to Dexter, there were also firefighters from Scio Township, Ann Arbor Township, Putnam Township, Unadilla Township, Hamburg Township and Chelsea assisting. The house is in the 8200 block of North Territorial Road, just east of Huron River Drive.

The call came in from the homeowner at 5:45 a.m. Saturday morning. No one was injured. Root said the fire burned the entire roof of the house. There was smoke and water damage, and the house is not livable at this time.

Root says that the fire marshal visited the home. No cause for the fire has yet been determined.

The Washtenaw-Lenawee County Chapter of the American Red Cross said it helped the family of two find food, clothing and lodging following the blaze.
