Schroon house burns

An unoccupied house on Schroon Lake was destroyed in an early morning fire June 2.

There were no injuries in the blaze at 35 Adirondack Road, a seasonal home belonging to Michael Carroll of Delmar.

At 5:25 a.m., Schroon Lake Volunteer Fire Department firefighters received a report from an automatic alarm at the house. When they arrived, they found the two-story structure fully engulfed in flames.

A garage that was not attached to the house was saved, although the home was lost.

The cause of the fire was still under investigation.

Firefighters from Horicon, Pottersville, North Hudson and Chilson were on the scene.
