The department said that the chords held the roof up despite many disconnected webs. Firefighters stayed off the roof and used caution while overhauling beneath the roof.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

It's the second fire in South Berwick in the past two weeks.

A house on Webster Street was completely destroyed on May 9 by a fire, according to the South Berwick Fire Department. A GoFundMe page said the family not only lost their home, but also a car and a pet.
