CARLTON – The fire that destroyed a Carlton home on Friday afternoon remains under investigation, said Walter Batt, a fire investigator for Orleans County.

The insurance provider for the house owned by Tim and Terry Keller will have personnel on the scene early next week to help sift through the rubble and look for a cause.

Firefighters from several departments were on scene after the initial call went out at about 12:30 p.m. for the fire at 1830 Kent Rd. It took about three hours to bring the blaze under control. Firefighters struggled to snuff out the fire due to windy conditions on Friday.
