Family Loses House After Thurston Fire

     THURSTON (WENY) -- Crews from several surrounding communities responded to a house fire around 10 am at 5565 County Road 11 in Thurston on Thursday.  When they arrived they found a home almost fully engulfed in flames.

     The Thurston fire chief says the home is a complete loss. Although no one was home when the blaze broke out, family members were not able to locate a family dog afterwards.  Fire investigators say the home did contain a wood burning stove, but the cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
