LeRoy, N.Y. – A home on North Road in LeRoy was destroyed by fire around 12:30 a.m. Saturday, according to the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office.
A passing motorist on North Road saw the fire that started on a porch and spread to the rest of the home, investigators said.
Livingston, Monroe and Genesee Counties all responded. Some tankers had to be brought in because of a lack of water in the area.
A firefighter was thrown back by an explosion, but he was not taken to the hospital.
No one was home at the time of the fire, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
