VOLNEY, NY – Investigators with the countyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Cause and Origin Team are on the scene this morning of a house fire that started Monday evening in the town of Volney.

ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œThe house was unoccupied,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â a 911 spokesperson said.
Crews Volney, Phoenix, Palermo and New Haven responded to the blaze. The fire was reported ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œknocked downÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â at 9:59 p.m.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œThe one-story structure was totaled,ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â the spokesperson said, citing information from a Volney fire department lieutenant. Because the roof caved in, firefighters battled the fire only from the exterior of the structure.
