The fire was extinguished and the Southampton Town Fire Marshal’s office was investigating the cause of the fire in the upstairs of 364 North Sea Road, according to officials.
On Monday afternoon, Southampton Fire Chief Dennis Roy said the call came in at 2:52 p.m. from someone walking past the house who saw smoke. Firefighters were on scene in under 3 minutes. Initially, first responders found two upstairs bedrooms filled with smoke, and a third, locked bedroom with smoke emanating from under the door. Firefighters broke down the door, and found a bunk bed fully engulfed in flames, with the fire spreading to a nearby closet.
The blaze was extinguished in approximately 10 minutes, Chief Roy said.
No injuries were reported in the blaze.
There was no structural damage to the house as a result of the fire, but the house cannot be lived in at this time due to smoke damage. There was one home at the time the fire started, officials said.
Firefighters remained at the scene to air out the residence, and cut a small hole in the upstairs floor to drain roughly three inches of water that accumulated while fighting the fire.
The Southampton Fire Department, Southampton Volunteer Ambulance, and Southampton Town Police all responded to the scene.
The fire was not at the gas station, but at a residence next door to the station. Firefighters were on the scene working to extinguish the blaze as of 3:20 p.m., but there was no longer any visible smoke outside the home.
Firefighters responded to the scene of a possible fire at the Coastal Gas Station on North Sea Road in Southampton on Monday afternoon.
Officials reported a working fire with heavy smoke.
No further information was available.
