TOWN OF BROWNVILLE, New York (WWNY) - Firefighters battled a blaze at a home in the town of Brownville Monday afternoon.

Volunteers from several departments were called to 20279 Reasoner Road at around 3:30 p.m.

7 News reporter Lexi Bruening was on the scene and said the home was heavily damaged and the attached garage was destroyed.

Officials told her no one was home at the time the blaze broke out. A dog inside the house did not survive.

Volunteers from Brownville, North Pole, Town of Watertown, Three Mile Bay, Dexter and Pamelia fire departments were on the scene.

Officials said they had to be extra cautious fighting the fire because the owner had a large amount of ammunition inside. That wasn’t their only concern.

“We were behind the 8-ball from the beginning, just with the amount of fire that was already showing. Time of day and water out here is an issue,” said Town of Brownville Fire District Chief Ryan McIntosh.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation.
