Fire departments were called to 5 Lady Slipper Drive in Queensbury for a fire. The cause of the fire remains unknown at this time and is under investigation.

QUEENSBURY — A fire at a single-family home is under investigation after fire crews responded Thursday morning to 5 Lady Slipper Drive.

According to Queensbury Central Fire Department Chief Adam Norton, damage was limited to one room in the back of the house.

The fire began shortly after 9 a.m., and it did not spread as the windows and doors were closed, which limits the amount of oxygen for the fire, Norton said.

“Probably a little bit of smoke damage throughout the first floor, but fire damage was limited to the (one room),” he said.

Norton added that very little water was used to extinguish the blaze.

The house was sold on Nov. 1 of this year with the selling price at $262,000, reported. The Post-Star confirmed that it was sold as it was not listed on Warren County’s online database yet.

The new owners of the house were not listed on the site.

Bay Ridge, Queensbury Central and West Glens Falls volunteer fire departments responded to the scene.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time and remains under investigation.
