THREE MILE BAY, New York (WWNY) - A two-story wood-frame home caught fire in the town of Lyme early Wednesday morning.

It happened around 4 a.m. at 8930 State Route 12E in Three Mile Bay.

Jefferson County fire officials say the family of two adults and two children were home at the time. They left the house and called 911.

The home is a total loss, but a few personal items were saved.

The Three Mile Bay fire chief said it was difficult to get to the flames because of the type of construction. There were five departments at the scene.

Route 12E between county routes 5 and 8 were closed for about six hours Wednesday morning.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

A Gofundme account has been started to help the family.
