KENDALL – An early morning fire at a lakefront house in Kendall destroyed the home owned by MaryAnne Wedow.

Firefighters were dispatched at 12:33 a.m. for a house fire.

Two firefighters are up on the roof, trying to ventilate the smoke from inside.

The fire was smoky on the narrow road where houses are close together.

Firefighters work on the exterior of the house. Some of the walls were cut open to let out smoke and make it easier to put out the fire inside.

Firefighters head to the roof, including one firefighter with a chainsaw to help ventilate the roof.

This firefighter uses a ladder for support while cutting into the roof.

There were firefighters from Kendall, Holley, Carlton and Fancher-Hulberton-Murray at the scene.

A National Grid truck arrived about 2:15 to disconnect power from the house so there weren’t live wires on the property.
