HINGHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - Officials are investigating a fast-moving fire that destroyed a home in Hingham on Tuesday.

Firefighters responding to a reported blaze on Main Street around 1 p.m. found the home engulfed in flames, according to Hingham Fire Chief Steve Murphy. No one was injured but the home was a total loss.

“Obviously anytime anyone loses a house and their entire possessions is very difficult for a family, it’s even worse when it’s this close to the holidays,” Murphy said.

Family, friends, and neighbors were assisting the residents.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
