By the time crews got to the scene, the two story house was engulfed in flames.
There was little they could do to save it.
We’re told the owner was away visiting a friend when the fire started.
That’s whyfirefighters were surprised to see tracks in the fresh snow in the driveway when they arrived.
They’re not calling it suspicious at this point, but they do have some questions.
