Local fire officials from several surrounding departments were sent to a home in High Falls just after 2:40 a.m. First arriving units discovered a fully involved house fire.
There were initial reports stating a woman died in the blaze, but New York State Police still could not confirm or deny the claim of High Falls officials that a woman was killed in the Sunday fire.
Officials reportedly had trouble searching the over 100-year-old home in Ulster County because the house was an unstable structure, officials say.
