Dennis Firefighters battle Wednesday a.m. Fire

It was a busy Wednesday morning for Dennis Firefighters.

They responded to a report of a building fire at 290 Great Western Road in South Dennis shortly after 4 a.m.

Arriving units declared a working fire in the two-story building containing five businesses. Once inside, firefighters searched to locate the seat of the fire which was discovered in the 1st story building portion of Michael Speakman & Associates, a building and remodeling company. The fire appears to have started above an area of the 1st floor bathroom near a hot water heater.

Firefighters had the fire under control by 5:14 a.m.

The Speakman business suffered moderate fire, heat smoke and water damage to its business and there was minor smoke and water damage to the adjacent businesses in the structure. 

The Dennis Police Dpt. assisted firefighters with scene control and re-routed traffic around the fire scene off Great Western Rd.

Harwich Firefighters responded for mutual aid to the fire to assist Dennis and Brewster and Yarmouth covered the 2 empty Dennis Stations. 

There were no injuries.
