KIRKLAND, N.Y. -- Crews were still on the scene of a fire in Kirkland putting out hot spots in the early morning hours on Wednesday.

Crews responded to the fire along Reservoir Road, in Kirkland, in the area of Skyline Drive and Ernest Road. 

The fire burned for about two hours before crews were able to control the flames. 

Initial 911 dispatches said the building is abandoned. The Clinton fire chief says the house had collapsed about a year ago, and the remnants of the structure are what caught on fire.

Crews were still on the scene after 2 a.m. Wednesday morning, putting out any hot spots.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
