No one was harmed in the fire, though wind blew the flames within 50 feet of a nearby home at 320 Takemmey Path belonging to Andrew and Sarah Aliberti.

Neighbors called in the fire around 3:30 p.m. Sarah McDonnell, who lives in the Alibertis’ guest house, also saw the fire.

“I saw flames, I told these guys it was like a war zone,” she said.

The fire was extinguished after response from West Tisbury firefighters and other fire departments that offered mutual aid.

A little after 6 p.m. Mrs. Aliberti and Ms. McDonnell were standing outside the Aliberti home, watching as firemen continued to spray Class A foam onto the blackened ground.

A melted plastic table, charred basketball and the smell of smoke permeating her home were the extent of the damages, Mrs. Aliberti said. Her family was off-Island and she was in Edgartown running their store, Summer Shades, when the fire broke out.

“No one was home. Thank God for you and the neighbors,” she said to Ms. McDonnell. The Alibertis’ cats were also safely inside the house.

Before the fire, the woods were full of brush reaching a couple feet high, Mrs. Aliberti said.

“It’s really dry back here,” Ms. McDonnell added.
