One male occupant was transported to the hospital following a house fire at 30 Oak Place in Halifax on Wednesday.
The home was fully involved with flames when first responders arrived and was still smoldering, reduced to a charred shell, as homeowner Tia O’Meara arrived.
She was visibly distraught as Fire Chief Jason Viveiros and Police Chief Theodore Broderick spoke to her in the neighbor’s yard.
The home, on the edge of Crystal Lake, is approximately 2000 feet off Plymouth Street.
Hose lines were stretched and connected to reach the fire hydrants and get water on the flames.
As of press time on Thursday, the cause of the fire remains under investigation by the State Fire Marshal’s office.
