A fire Thursday night at 42 Cindy Crest Drive in Rotterdam destroyed most of the home, but no one was injured.
Residents were not home at the time of the fire, which was reported around 9:30 p.m., but a dog was rescued.
Rotterdam District 2 firefighters arrived to find the back of the house fully involved. The fire was so advanced, however, that they go inside the house.
The Carman, Fort Hunter, South Schenectady and Plotterkill fire companies aided Rotterdam in battling the two-alarm fire.
Firefighters also directed water on 44 Cindy Crest Drive, but it appears it and other surrounding houses were not damaged.
