Local Marine veteran's Folcroft Lane home severely damaged in fire

The family of five has been displaced.

The home of local Marine veteran Robert Detherow and his family at 38 Folcroft Lane sustained "extensive damage" in a house fire at about 6 p.m. March 15, according to a news release from the city of Palm Coast government. No one was injured. 

The Palm Coast Fire Department and Flagler County Fire Rescue responded to the scene and found "heavy fire" coming from the home's garage. The fire may have started with a motorcycle parked inside, according to the news release. 

"Our firefighters knocked down the flames from the front of the garage and then made an aggressive interior fire attack to get a good stop on the fire and save a good portion of the contents of the residence," Palm Coast Fire Department Engine 24 Capt. Kyle Berryhill said in the news release. 

No people or pets were injured, but the Detherow family — five people — has been displaced. 

The Palm Coast Fire Department and Flagler County Sheriff's Office have helped the family contact the local chapter of the American Red Cross, according to the news release. 

The State Fire Marshal  is overseeing the investigation.
