A Monroe county dwelling was leveled by a devastating fire early Thursday morning near Tannersville.

Neighbors reported flames were through the roof of the home located along Marcelle Terrace, just off Fish Hill Road, and the fire was first reported just after 5 a.m.

By the time fire fighters from numerous Monroe county fire companies arrived, the $300,000 single family dwelling was fully involved in flames. Kristen Mussi, Edward Dudas and Mussi's two brothers managed to escape the flames.

Due to the remote location of the site water had to be tanked into the scene.

Fire officials and police are not calling the fire arson but say the cause is undetermined.
