Firefighters arrived on scene shortly after neighbors detected the fire around 2:00 a.m. By the time firefighters were able to put out the fire, the damage was already done. Five houses had been damaged with three of them total losses.
“Usually we’re still able to look at the structure and see kind of where it started,” said Chief Mark Mercer with the Hamilton Fire Department. “This one has totally burned to the ground, and there’s just nothing left of it.”

The chief said the fire started in the one-story home in the middle. The home to the left was the clubhouse of the Iron Horseman Motorcycle Club.
Hamilton Police Department say they’ve had no problems with anyone at that address in recent history. Just a couple of car stops out front. Foul play is not suspected.
The only camera known to have captured anything began shooting after the fire started, the Hamilton Fire Department says they will continue investigating.
