A house in Easton Township is being described as “unlivable” after a fire Tuesday afternoon.
Firefighters were dispatched at 4:12 p.m., Tuesday, May 14, to 1032 Hackett Street in Easton Township for a report of a residential structure fire, said John Odette, deputy director with the Ionia Department of Public Safety.
There was heavy smoke coming from the second story of the home, Odette said. Nobody was at the home when firefighters arrived. Crews removed six dogs and other pets from the home.
It took about a half hour to bring the fire under control, Odette said. The house had heavy damage to the second floor and water and damage to the first floor.
“At this time, it is unlivable,” Odette said Tuesday evening.
A cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
“We’ll probably come back out tomorrow and take a look and dig through,” Odette said.
