WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Friday's fire in Watertown wasn't set intentionally - that's the belief of the fire department. Now a private investigator will work to find the cause.

The early evening blaze gutted a home at the corner of Ten Eyck and Dimmick streets. No one was hurt.

City Fire Chief Dale Herman told 7 News on Monday that he doesn’t believe there’s anything criminal about the fire and that a private insurance company investigator will now figure out how it started.
