Flames tear through Washingtonville home

A family is expected to return from vacation to find their Washingtonville home gutted by flames.



Firefighters say they arrived at the home off of South Street early Saturday morning to find flames spewing from every window. Mutual aid was provided by surrounding fire departments.



The crews were able to quell the fire in about a half-hour.



Fire officials say the blaze does not appear to be suspicious. There is no word on an exact cause.



County investigators say they are still trying to contact the family to notify them of the fire.
