Markle Assistant Fire Chief Eric Pike said shifting winds did give them problems as they fought the fire that could be seen for miles. It took crews over an hour to get it under control. Luckily, crews did not experience frozen hoses or hydrants.

Pike said they don’t know what started the fire.

An ambulance could be seen on standby but there were no injuries; no one was home at the time of the fire.

The home is a total loss and the Red Cross has been contacted to help the displaced family.
