The Chautauqua County Fire Investigation Team says the blaze broke out at around 8 o’clock in a home on Allegany Road in Irving. The homeowners were not there when the fire started.
Because the house is outside the city water system Sunset Bay firefighters had to use tankers from a number of other fire departments. They knocked down the majority of the fire in about 20 minutes.
There were no reports of human injuries. The cause of the fire hasn’t been determined yet.
