Fairhaven Firefighters battle fully involved shed fire with exposures


“The Fairhaven Fire Department responded to a reported shed fire in the rear of 14 Jefferson St. The first crew arrived at 12:52 a.m to find a fully involved shed fire with exposures. The fire extended to a 21 ft. recreational boat and caused damage to a 2013 GMC Acadia which firefighters were able to safely remove to prevent any further damage.

Occupants were home at the time of the fire and were alerted to the fire by neighbors. Even though steady winds increased the intensity, the fire was declared under control after about 20 minutes. Firefighters remained on the scene performing salvage and overall, and cleared the location at 2:10 a.m.

No civilians or firefighters were injured.

Cause: The cause is still under investigation but has been determined to be most likely accidental.

Estimated Damage: The damage to the structure is estimated to be between $5-$10 thousand. The vehicle damage and recreational boat damage are unknown at this time.”-Fairhaven Fire-EMS.
