HEUVELTON - An over-heated wood stove chimney was the cause of a house fire at 126 Lost Village Road Monday night, according to a release by the St. Lawrence County Fire Investigation Team.
Firefighters from Heuvelton were assisted by the Morristown and Brier Hill volunteer fire departments and the Ogdensburg Rescue Squad while putting out the fire.
The home, owned by Christopher Weston, was totally destroyed by the fire according to fire investigation team.
Heuvelton Fire Chief Mark D. Basford, however, said they managed to pull out the majority of Mr. Westons personal belongings, including Christmas presents.
I wouldnt consider it a total loss, he said. The house is pretty much salvageable from what I can see.
Firefighters arrived at 8 p.m. and left at 10:26 p.m.
The home was uninsured. No injuries were reported.
