Duncan Lake home destroyed by early morning blaze

 

A single family residence at Duncan Lake near Caledonia was destroyed by fire early Wednesday morning.Thornapple Township Emergency Services responded at 4:25 a.m. TTES Chief Randy Eaton said.

“It was fully involved when we got there. Someone from across Duncan Lake called it in.”

 

The home was undergoing a complete remodel and was unoccupied. A 45-foot chimney still standing has to be taken down before firefighters can safely enter the area and dig around to determine the cause of the fire, Eaton said. No cost estimate is available yet.

 

Thornapple Township firefighters cleared at about 10:30 a.m.

“We’ll be back to get hot spots; we’ll take care of things as they come up. It’s unfortunate. The remodel was almost complete and they planned to move in within 30 to 45 days,” Eaton said.

 

Tankers had to be filled with water at the nearest fire hydrant at Holy Family Church in Caledonia, he said. Fire departments from Gaines Township, Wayland/Yankee Springs, Freeport, Caledonia, Leighton Township and Wayland assisted TTES, mainly with the water shuttle.
