No one was home at the time.
Clare, Harrison and Gladwin County fire departments worked hard to quickly extinguish the fire before it caused too much structural or external damage.
The house now stands empty with windows broken out from putting out the blaze. Piles of debris sits out in front of the gutted house and a single bird feeder still hangs off of the porch. Some of the siding is warped and melted from the heat of the blaze and “Fire Line Do Not Cross” tape still wraps the house.
The fire is still under investigation and the cause of the blaze is still unknown at this time.
