YATES – A fire destroyed a home on Goodwin Road in the town of Yates on Tuesday afternoon and also resulted in the deaths of five dogs inside the house, Walter Batt, Orleans County fire investigator, said this morning.

The cause of the fire is undetermined while fire officials await testing results, Batt said.

The fire broke out at about 4 p.m. at 1877 Goodwin Rd. The house is owned by Diana and Antonio Lopez. No one was home when the fire started.

The house was a total loss and was torn down last night, Batt said.
