Gouverneur firefighters say wind was a factor in a fire that destroyed a Welsh Road home Thursday afternoon.

According to the department's Facebook page, the 88 Welsh Road fire took several hours to put out.

The fire was reported at around 1:30 p.m.

The home was a total loss and the homeowners lost three dogs.

No people were injured.

(Note: The fire department's Facebook page and maps of the area show the road as Welch Road. A street sign and the homeowner say it's Welsh Road.)
