Fire engulfs wood frame home in Seekonk

Posted: Updated:
SEEKONK, Mass. -

An overnight fire forced families and firefighters out of a Seekonk home early Tuesday.

Video from the scene showed flames pouring out of the second floor of the two-story home.

Witnesses told NBC 10 the fire started in the basement and worked its way up through the structure.

No injuries were reported.

Chief Alan Jack of the Seekonk Fire Department said the flames were so intense, at one point fire crews were forced to retreat from the building at least once.

Power was also cut to the building.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
