Just before 10pm on Friday the Harwich Fire Department responded to 101 Parallel Street for a reported house fire.
The occupants were watching TV when they noticed lights flickering and flashing outside. When they went outside to investigate the house was burning in the area of the electrical service.
The Fire Department requested Eversource to secure the power and then checked for fire extension inside the house. Once the power was secured, personnel removed the burning trim and wet down the area.
