LOWVILLE – A Lewis County home was destroyed by a fire over the weekend, according to Lewis County Emergency Management.

The fire at 5495 River Street in Lowville was discovered just after 11 p.m. Sunday. Officials say that according to the homeowner, he left home to go to the store and then returned to see a glow from the fire in his front window.

The owner then called 911 as the window broke, allowing the fire to spread rapidly. By the time the Lowville Fire Department arrived on scene, most of the two-story home was fully involved with flames. The Castorland Volunteer Fire Department was also called to assist with the fire.

Officials say that nobody was injured, and the structure has been deemed a total loss.

The cause of the fire is believed to be electrical, but it is still under investigation.
