“The house was pretty much boarded up,” Morrin said. “We had really tough [time] getting into the house because of all the boards. We managed to pull all the boards off and the fire’s out now.”

Morrin said that the house was fully involved when crews arrived, and it was two-alarm blaze with about six fire trucks on scene.
