Five people are in the care of the Red Cross tonight after a fire destroyed their home in Greece. 

Officials say the blaze started Saturday afternoon in the basement of a house on Stone Road.  Barnard Fire Chief, John Driscoll, says that the flames were mostly contained.

"We were called here for a possible basement fire," said Chief Driscoll.  "On arrival we had smoke showing, and we found the fire in the basement with some extension up to the first floor."

Three people were home at the time of the fire.  The Red cross says nobody was injured.
