Shortly after 8:00pm tonight, (Thursday) Somerville firefighters began battling a blaze that broke out in a single family home on Dickerson Street in Somerville.

The occupants of the home were forced to evacuate the residence to the streets with just the cloths on their backs.

According to sources, one of the occupants of the home had just returned to the states within the past six months from a tour of duty in Irac and Afghanistan.

According to sources, it is believed that the occupant’s family dog has died in the blaze

No Injuries have been reported and the cause of the fire is yet to be determined.

This is still a developing story……….
