GANSEVOORT — Fire investigators were still on the scene late Saturday following a fire that destroyed a home and killed three pets.

Gansevoort Assistant Fire Chief Keith Burch said the call came in at about 5 p.m. from passers-by for a structure fire at 246 Austin Road. No one was believed to be in the residence at the time of the call.

Burch said the one-story home was fully engulfed by the time firefighters arrived.

Though the investigation was not complete, Burch said a faulty appliance was suspected as the cause.

No personal injuries were reported and the home was insured. Mutual aid was provided by Wilton, South Glens Falls and Schuylerville fire departments. Victory Mills Fire Department assisted in establishing a fill site.
