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.
