An Ashland family vacationing in the Carolinas got a call that a three-alarm blaze destroyed their home this morning, according to the Ashland Fire Department. “It went to three alarms pretty quickly,” said Peter Chisholm, spokesman for the fire department. The fire was reported at 6:20 a.m. when a passerby noticed the shooting flames, he said. Firefighters had to battle the blaze from outside of the house because the fire was so massive, Chisholm said.
