VERNON, N.Y. -- A family's hand built home in Vernon was destroyed by fire Thursday. Fire crews say they started hearing reports of heavy smoke just before 11:30 a.m. They say the road's remote access made it difficult for them to even start fighting the fire.

No one was in the house. The family who owns the home says they'll be moving in with family while they rebuild.
"Sick to my stomach. This is the one thing you never want to, well other than loss of family, this is, you never want to lose your home. I never dreamed of it happening. We'll get through it," homeowner Michael Kazlaus said.

The Vernon Fire Department is still investigating the cause of the fire. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
