Byron Center fire rekindles, destroys house


BYRON CENTER, Mich. — A fire reignited late Tuesday night and destroyed a house several hours after it was extinguished Tuesday afternoon.

The rekindled blaze ultimately destroyed the home.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office and Cutlerville firefighters originally were called to 4600 76th Street SW in Byron Center at mid-afternoon Tuesday for a fire that was put out at about 4 p.m. Then, at about 10:30 p.m., firefighters were called back to the scene when the fire rekindled.

This time the flames burned through the entire roof, and the blaze destroyed the house.

Several other surrounding departments were called to the scene for mutual aid during the second fire.

Firefighters told FOX 17 NEWS that the original flames were an electrical fire that started in the attic.
