      Torch Lake home destroyed by early morning fire

      A home on Torch Lake was destroyed by an early morning fire.

      A home on Torch Lake was destroyed by an early morning fire.

      Crews have been on the scene since around 3:30 this morning fighting the blaze on NW Torch Lake Road. Officials from the Torch Lake Fire Department say neighbors called in the fire around 2:45 a.m. after they heard glass breaking and saw an orange glow.

      The home is on the western shore of Torch Lake.

      Crews on the scene say no one was inside the home at the time of the fire. The owners live downstate and purchased the home last fall, officials say. They are calling it a total loss.

      An investigation into the cause is ongoing.
