TICONDEROGA - A home on Highland Avenue was destroyed by fire May 13 and a neighbor was credited with alerting an elderly occupant of the home to the blaze.
Kathleen Moore spotted the fire at 28 Highland and phoned resident Gillette Bartlett to tell him to get out, since he had not noticed the fire yet, officials said.
Bartlett and two other residents of the home were left homeless but no injuries were reported, officials said.
The blaze started around 5:30 p.m. Thursday and firefighters from Ticonderoga, Hague, Putnam and Crown Point remained on the scene until early Friday.
The fire is believed to have started accidentally in a second-floor bedroom, but the exact cause has not been determined.
