Winchester Fire battles blaze on Mutual Ave. home
Fire officials are investigating to find what caused a Sunday morning fire at a house on Mutual Avenue in Winchester.
Firefighters were called to 4 Mutual Ave. at 10 a.m. Sunday to find smoke coming from the eaves of the house, Winchester Fire-EMS Battalion Chief Chris Whiteley said.
The bulk of the fire was contained to two rooms at the back of the house, he said, with much of the rest of the house receiving smoke and heat damage.
Firefighters cut holes in the roof to ventilate the house, he said.
Firefighters were on the scene for about two and a half hours, though investigators remained for most of the afternoon and returned Monday, Whiteley said.
The cause, so far, has not been determined.
He said it appeared no one had lived in the home for several days.
No one was injured while fighting the fire.
