CARLTON – A home on Sawyer Road was badly damaged in a fire this afternoon.

The house at 1523 Sawyer Rd. is owned by Lee Kruger. It was built in 2007. Firefighters were dispatched to the scene at about 4 p.m.

Kruger and his family were able to get out of the house safely.

Firefighters from Carlton, Kendall, Albion, Medina and Lyndonville were at the scene, as well as the county emergency management office, fire investigators and the Red Cross. The fire devoured the roof of the house.

Firefighters work together to get water on the blaze.

These firefighters are at the back of the house, where the air was filled with smoke.

Firefighters have multiple hoses going to put out the fire.

A Carlton firefighter connects two hoses to reach the back of the house.

These firefighters get the thick hose in better position to battle the fire on Sawyer Road, just north of Route 18.
