Cambridge home destroyed by fire

Posted: Updated:
Route 15 in Cambridge was closed for hours while first responders battled a house fire. Fire officials say the home on Pumpkin Harbor Road caught fire around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday. Four departments responded and hot humid temperatures made fighting the fire tricky.

Authorities say the family was upstairs packing for a trip when a couch caught fire.

"There was a candle lit in the living room area. And from what I understand they were upstairs packing and when they came back down the couch was on fire," Cambridge Assistant Fire Chief Dan Wyckoff said.

The family escaped unharmed. Firefighters say it was accidental and the home is a total loss.
