Updated 1 year ago

Fire officials say three people house sitting at a winterized lakeside cabin in Standish escaped unharmed following a fire that started in a kitchen stove. The fire in the home on Watchic Lake was reported just after 4 p.m. Wednesday. The owner was not in the home at the time. Fire Chief Brent Libby says firefighting crews had difficulty reaching the home because it was about 500 feet from the nearest driveway, the snowstorm and road conditions. He says water also had to be trucked to the location, with hoses being run through a garage and down a hill to reach the scene. Eight nearby departments provided mutual aid.
