Esky Township Home Destroyed in Fire

A Delta County couple has to stand by and watch as a fire destroys their home.

It happened yesterday afternoon on 21st Road in Escanaba Township.

The couple came back from a shopping trip at about 12:30 to find a fire that started in their garage while they were gone.

After calling 911, they tried to put out the flames themselves with a garden hose.

But it spread to the house, and they couldn’t.

Township firefighters say the house is considered a total loss, but it was insured.

Crews from Bark River and Harris also helped out.

Firefighters had to stay at the scene until after 6pm.

No one was hurt.
