ELLISBURG, N.Y. (WWNY) - A town of Ellisburg home was a total loss after fire swept through it Tuesday.

Volunteers from several departments were called to Woodpecker Lane shortly after 4 p.m.

No one was home at the time, but two dogs managed to get out of the house. One of the dogs confined to a pen in the back of the house suffered burns, but is in good condition.

Crews were there late into the evening to make sure the fire was out.

“With the modifier involved in this fire, it’s a dangerous situation,” Adams assistant Fire Chief Robert Simpson said. “But it’s into a lot of the crevices in the residence where we have to move things to make sure that the fire is completely out”

The road was closed to traffic as crews worked.

The cause is under investigation.
