Firefighters could not save a home on the Cambridge-Underhill town line Tuesday.
A blaze tore through the home on Circling Hawk Road. The biggest problem -- crews couldn't get equipment to the house. The road leading to the home wasn't plowed. Crews used a skidder to clear part of a path -- and had to use ATVs with tracks -- and snowmobiles to haul in water and supplies. They also used snow surrounding the home -- just to keep it from spreading.
"Unfortunately at this time, the structure has burned to the ground. We were not able to do anything for it. We are just containing the fire and waiting for it to burn out. It's all we can do. It's one of those unfortunate events," explained 2nd Asst. Chief Dan Wyckoff with the Cambridge Fire Department.
No one was hurt in the blaze. The family managed to escape. The cause of the fire is not yet known.
