The last hots spots are being extinguished and fire crews are just being put back in service following a house fire at 1081 Broadway, Darien, that was reported at about 1:35 p.m.
The homeowner, a single occupant, Diane Allison, was not hurt in the fire, though her home was destroyed.
There's no word yet on how the fire started, but the point of origin appears to be somewhere at the rear of the house.
Eight fire departments from Genesee and Erie counties responded, along with Mercy EMS, the Sheriff's Office, State Police and Genesee Emergency Services.
A driver who reportedly drove his car into a parked fire tanker was not injured in the accident.
Allison had cats in the house, but no word yet on their fate.
Route 20 should reopen within 30 minutes.
