Green Oak Township home destroyed in early morning fire

A Green Oak Township house was completely destroyed by fire early Tuesday morning.

The fire, at a home on Rushton Road near Silver Lake Road, was reported just before 4:30 a.m. When firefighters arrived on the scene, the structure was fully engulfed in flames. Green Oak Fire Chief Kevin Gentry tells GIGO News that a second alarm was called due to the area being without fire hydrants and tankers being needed to shuttle in water.

“The homeowner was eventually located and had been away from the property at the time of the fire,” he said.

The home was completely destroyed in the fire, with sections collapsing into the basement.

The fire was under control in 45 minutes and crews were on scene for three hours.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

The Green Oak Charter Township Fire Department was assisted by Brighton Area Fire Authority, Lyon Township Fire Department, South Lyon Fire Department, Northfield Township Fire Department, Hamburg Township Fire Department, Green Oak Charter Township Police Department, Livingston County EMS, DART, and Livingston County Central Dispatch.
