"On our arrival it was through the roof," Lakeville Fire Chief Daniel Hopkins said.
A husband, wife and daughter were in the house at the time of the fire. They were able to make it out safely after hearing smoke alarms. There were no injuries.
Hopkins said the single-family two-story house was likely a "total loss" with over $300,000 in damages.
Lakeville received mutual aid from Middleboro and Freetown. Hopkins said the fire took about two hours to put out because the house was set back and on a hill, which caused some difficulty. He said the snowstorm created difficulties, as well.
A Lakeville family of three lost their home to a fire Friday morning.

Hopkins asked for a vote from department members to discharge the three. "We are a volunteer department but I take it very seriously and I think you do to," Hopkins told his members which included the 50 or more who met in the fire hall just off U.S. 431 at Hollis Crossroads.

Chief Hopkins said pyromania is a disease and one of the firemen charged has asked for help.
He added, "We've taken a hard hit. It reflected back on this department and our good members. We've got to purge the department of wrong doing. It reflects on all of us. We've come a long way here at Hollis."
Hopkins noted how the department has grown over the years, noting their "Haunted Chicken House" raised $101,000 last year.
"This is still an on-going investigation and there may be other charges. There are no statute of limitations," he added while pointing out that with 250 calls per year the department does not need any more, particularly involving arson.
Cleburne County Sheriff's Arson Investigator Michael Gore credited Hopkins, Wiggonton, Sheriff Jacks and Paulk for their assistance in his investigation.

"Dan's been more than cooperative and he is probably one of the best fire chiefs in the county. Dan is a personal friend of mine and this has been one of the hardest things I've ever had to do.
...
"Dan has been very instrumental in helping us solve several of these cases.
...
I'm glad you (Hopkins) stuck around and stayed on the (state) board.
...

...
Nolen added, "I'm here to support Dan and all of you in this department."
...
You've got a good man," Paulk said of Hopkins.
...
Wiggonton added, "We have as much pride as Dan has.
...

...
Hopkins added, saying "This was nothing any of us did.
...

I commend the work of Chief Dan Hopkins of the Hollis VFD. He is one of the most dedicated fire chief of Cleburne County. The fire department nor the county fire departments should be blamed for the tragic incident, the individuals acted solely on their own. All we can do is pray for the Hollis Fire Department and the members of the fire department. I still and will always support the Hollis Fire Department and Chief Hopkins.
