Posted: Updated:

A Monkton home was destroyed by fire Tuesday night.

Firefighters battled flames late into the night. The house already engulfed when they got there. Crews say heavy winds made it tough to fight.

One person was home at the time and tried to fight the flames by themselves before help arrived.

Monkton Assistant Fire Chief Curtis Layn said, "Reports of first people on the scene, they were trying to extinguish the flames when we showed up and realized they were going to be overcome."

Firefighters say the home is a total loss.

No one was hurt.

No word yet on a cause.
