Fire Damages Home On Bay City’s West Side; Bridgeport Home Destroyed

A section of the M-25 business route through Bay City was closed for two hours Sunday, January 10 due to a house fire.

Bay County Central Dispatch reported the fire in the 500 block of S. Williams St. just after 2:00 p.m. Public Safety Officers closed off Thomas and Wenona until just after 4:00 p.m. Fire crews were able to knock down the fire and bring it under control after about a half hour.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. There were no reports of any injuries.

Early Monday morning Bridgeport Township Fire Units responded to 3890 Nicol Drive at the corner of Williamson Road where the house was half engulfed in flames.  The family of seven safely escaped from their burning home.  Investigators say it appears the fire started in the kitchen.  The roof of the single story ranch home collapsed.

Bridgeport, Spaulding, Buena Vista and Frankenmuth Fire Departments all had crews on the scene.
