A new home on Huckleberry Brook, Margaretville was destroyed by fire early on Saturday morning.
The log home and adjacent garage owned by Tom Donovan were leveled by the blaze that was spotted shortly after midnight. When firefighters arrived at the house on Hill Road, the structure was completely engulfed in flames.
“It was totally involved,” commented Margaretville Fire Chief Gene Rosa. “There was nothing left to save.”
The fire was spotted by a resident of Ben Meeker Road, near Dunraven, who witnessed a huge glow in the sky.
