Some good news, the family dog was inside the burning home and was thought to have been lost in the blaze, but moments later a firefighter walked out of house with the dog in his arms and everyone there broke out clapping and cheering.
According to a source close to the family, Joyce Mcguirk who owns the house is believed to not have any insurance and allegedly she said the back door was open and they have not ruled out arson as of yet.
The top of the home is completely gutted from the blaze and just a lot of damage.
The source also tells us that Kevin, the military veteran who lives there, most likely lost his ribbons and medals he received during his deployment in the marines.
Shortly after 8:00pm tonight, (Thursday) Somerville firefighters began battling a blaze that broke out in a single family home on Dickerson Street in Somerville.
The occupants of the home were forced to evacuate the residence to the streets with just the cloths on their backs.
According to sources, one of the occupants of the home had just returned to the states within the past six months from a tour of duty in Irac and Afghanistan.
No Injuries have been reported and the cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
This is still a developing story……….
