(Massena) Fire fighters were called out this morning to a house fire south of Massena.
Massena Fire Chief Brad Lank says the call came in at a little after 6:00 a.m. of a home at 20082 760th street completely engulfed in flames.
"When we arrived the scene the house was fully engulfed in flames and the male occupant was able to get out of the house safely," stated Lank. "The house is a complete loss."
Chief Lank says the occupant of the home went to the neighbors house and called in the fire. The cause is unknown, but the home was out of propane, and he says there is a possibilty the fire could have been caused by a space heater or something of that nature.
Massena Fire was assisted by tankers trucks from the Anita, Corning and Cumberland Fire Departments.
