Just days before Christmas, firefighters say a home is a total loss after fire broke out late Saturday night in Holley.

Flames were spotted coming from a home set back from the Monroe-Orleans County Line Road just before midnight.

A passerby saw the fire and called for help.

When ten fire companies pulled up, the home was already fully engulfed in flames.

While people do live in the home, no one was there at the time.

The freezing rain started to pour just as firefighters took on the house fire.

"It's very cold and you have to watch out for people falling and I mean, we have a rehab unit in one of our ambulances on-scene from Monroe. So we could rotate the firefighters in and out to get warm," said Harris Reed, Holley Fire Department Assistant Chief.

"The roads are very ice. Treacherous. So it's very cold and especially at this time of year with the holiday time, it's very hard on everybody. The family. Our family having to come in and deal with stuff like this," Reed said.

Investigators are still looking into the cause of the fire.
