A massive fire ripped through a 130-year-old farm house, Sunday night, in Genesee County.

Huge flames moved fast and chewed through the wooden house. The flames were so hot and dangerous, firefighters could only try to control it from the outside.

Crews say the home was being remodeled and had original woodwork inside. They say the house was being used seasonally for hunting.

No one was hurt.

Firefighters are now trying to figure out what caused this fire.
