SPRINGFIELD, N.Y. -- A two-story home in Otsego County is a total loss after a fire Friday morning.
It happened on Guy Witts Road in Springfield around 7:30 a.m.
When firefighters arrived the home was fully engulfed in flames.
Officials say no one was home at the time, and there were no injuries to occupants or pets.
The fire was difficult to fight, crews say, because the home was about ¾ of a mile from the road, and they had to run hoses from the road to the house. The home sits in a rural location.
Crews were able to get the fire under control, and the investigation is ongoing.
