    A fire in Somers has left a 65 year old man homeless after his house was gutted by an intense blaze.

    Heavy fire destroyed the house on Bilton Road in Somers this morning.

    It broke out at 12:45 a.m.

    The fire was so heavy that flames were coming out of every window and firefighters had to deal with downed wires and a nearby propane tank that threatened to strengthen the fire.

    The fire is out and did not spread to any other houses, but a 65-year-old man is homeless.

    He was not injured, according to officials.
