PARISHVILLE — A house along Pickettville Road went up in flames early Saturday afternoon, and is destroyed as a result.
The call came in just before 1 p.m. for a structure fire on Pickettville Road, which was fully engulfed in flames by 1:30 p.m. Most of the fire seemed to be spitting out of the top of the home.
Robert Pierce, deputy fire coordinator for county District 3, confirmed at about 3:30 p.m. that he and other crews were still at the scene of the fire. He was unable to provide further information.
The home is a total loss, and it’s unclear if there were any injuries.
The Red Cross announced later Saturday afternoon that volunteers from the organization’s Central & Northern New York Chapter provided immediate emergency aid to three people after the blaze.
Fire departments from Potsdam, Colton and Hopkinton-Fort Jackson assisted in extinguishing the blaze.
