BREWSTER, N.Y. – An early morning fire in an unoccupied West Wind Lane home is being investigated as possible arson, according to lohud.com.

Seventy-five firefighters from the Brewster Fire Department were joined by firefighters from eight other departments to battle the 2 a.m. blaze at the Pleasant View Farms house this past week, according to lohud.com, which reported that it took about one hour for officials to get control of the flames.

The first firefighters to arrive found the home engulfed in flames, according to lohud.com, which reported that a lack of a water supply also hindered the response, leading to a partial collapse of the building.

Officials said the house was unoccupied when the fire broke out, but they could not yet provide a specific cause, according to lohud.com, which reported that the blaze was the third on the property since 2015.
