A fire caused an estimated $15,000 at a lake home in Steuben County on Tuesday afternoon.
The Fremont Fire Department said crews were called to 235 Lane 750 Snow Lake about 1:40 p.m.
When they arrived, firefighters saw heavy smoke coming from the roof at the front of the house and heavy fire at the rear.
They were pushed out by smoke and heavy flames coming from the basement but finally got into the back side of the house and kept the fire from spreading, the department said.
The cause has not been determined.
