Levant Fire 

Fire fighters arrived at the home on Union Street just after one o’clock Saturday afternoon.

A passerby called in to say flames were shooting out of the house.

No one was home at the time of the fire, the home was destroyed.

It took crews several hours to contain the fire because high winds kept fanning the flames.

There has been no word yet on a cause.

The state fire marshal’s office has been called in to investigate.
