SOUTH DENNIS -- Around 12:40 p.m. Tuesday, July 3, 2012, the Dennis Fire Department responded to a structure fire at 156 Main Street in South Dennis.
Arriving crews found the back deck of the single-story ranch-style house ablaze. Flames were creeping up the back wall and into the eaves.
This was the second time in three days the department responded to a fire involving propane gas tanks on the back deck of a residential structure (see Sunday's fire here).
In Tuesday's fire, there were two propane tanks stored in a wooden box on the deck. They were not attached to a grill. The next-door neighbors reported hearing a hissing sound and saw a jet of fire streaming from the box containing the tanks.
Crews quickly knocked down the fire and then searched for extension. Fire damage was primarily restricted to the back deck and sidewall of the house, with smoke and water damage to the interior.
Investigators from the Dennis Fire Department reported that the pressure relief valves on both tanks had released but were unable to determine the ignition source that sparked the fire.
Dennis Fire Chief Mark Dellner commended the fire attack crews from their aggressive work. "They took care of business. With the propane hazard this could have turned into a nasty scene real quick without their rapid response and professional actions."
