WOLFEBORO — Officials say no one was injured but a pet cat was killed and a home seriously damaged in a fire Tuesday afternoon on Pine Hill Road in Wolfeboro.

According to Wolfeboro Deputy Fire Chief Tom Zotti, fire crews were dispatched to a home at 15 Pine Hill Road around 2:24 p.m. Tuesday after a passerby reported seeing smoke and flames coming from the structure.

“No one was home at the time,” said Zotti. “Pine Hill Road is a very busy road, and someone driving by phoned it in.”

Upon arrival, crews reported heavy fire in a garage area, which extended into the main part of the house. A second alarm was struck at 2:29 p.m.

Zotti said while no injuries were reported, a cat was killed in the blaze.

The fire was declared under control at 3:38 p.m. Zotti said the cause remains under investigation by the Wolfeboro Fire-Rescue Department and the sate Fire Marshal’s Office.

Fire-Rescue personnel from Tuftonboro, Wakefield, Alton, Ossipee Corner, Center Ossipee, West Ossipee, and Milton assisted Wolfeboro at the scene. New Durham fire crews provided coverage at Wolfeboro Central Station.

According to online property records, the home is owned by Nathaniel Edmunds.
