Posted: Updated:

Fire officials trying to figure out what sparked a devastating house fire in Orange County.

Cellphone video captured the inferno at 250 Schunnemunk Road on Wednesday as first responders rushed to the scene.

The small home, on a large lot, was located in the area up for annexation under the newly proposed Hasidic village of "Seven Springs."

Officials say no one was inside at the time, but that neighbors spotted the homeowner there moments before the blaze.

Authorities say arson dogs were brought in, but are not implying any wrongdoing.
