    Route 171 in Woodstock is closed while crews battle a house fire on Tuesday, Dec. 27.

    Three Woodstock residents are displaced after their home was destroyed by a fire Tuesday morning.

    Fire officials said the house is on the 600 block of Route 171. The three adult occupants of the home all got out safely, but the structure sustained serious damage.

    Woodstock Fire Marshal Dick Baron said the home is still standing, but the second floor and attic were gutted. The second floor is collapsing onto the first floor, and the structure will likely have to be condemned.

    Baron said before the fire started a tree came down onto power lines near the home and fire investigators are looking into whether that contributed to the blaze.

    The cause and origin are still under investigation and the state fire marshal was called in to assist.

    The Red Cross is assisting the family with immediate needs.
