LAKE GEORGE - A fire destroyed a two-story house at 59 Kirker Drive in lake George last week.
No members of the three-person family were home at the time of the fire.
Local firefighters worked for over an hour to control the blaze, which burned the walls of the home almost to the ground.
The home is owned by Kevin and Kimberly Fitzpatrick, who were alerted to the fire by smoke alarms and black smoke after arriving home Tuesday afternoon.
The home was insured and the cause of the fire was assumed accidental.
