GOUVERNEUR — A fire destroyed the home where five people were living early Sunday.

The Gouverneur Fire Department and Rescue Squad responded to a 12:36 a.m. call to a mobile home owned by Wes Belmore, Rochester, at 112 Barker Road, Rossie.

The fire was caused by a faulty lamp in the living room of the home, according to a fire investigators’ report.

Stephen and Alena Robinson and three unidentified children were living in the home and are being assisted by the Red Cross, a St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department release said.

The release said a male occupant was taken to Gouverneur Hospital for observation of respiratory problems.

The renters had insurance, but the owner did not, according to the release.
