Fire officials say a man's decision to walk his dog when he did, probably saved his life. While he was out of his house, flames broke out.
Crews were called to Clove Drive in Penfield after 6:00p.m. Thursday.
The second assistant fire chief said the flames were coming from both sides of the structure when he arrived on scene.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation and fire officials say the home is a total loss. The Red Cross is assisting the homeowner.
