It's been a tough few month for the owners of the Frost Ridge Campground in Le Roy. Lawsuits, health problems and Saturday morning a large fire ripped through their home on North Road.

That fire started around 12:30 a.m. Saturday morning at North Road near Conlon Road. The Le Roy Fire Department was called to the scene after a passerby spotted flames coming from the residence.

When crews got to scene, firefighters were sent into the house, but had to evacuate the home after something exploded -- knocking down a firefighter. Crews say the firefighter remained at the scene and did not require medical attention.

The owners of the home, David and Greg Luetticke-Archbell, were not present at the time of the fire, but arrived later to find their home in flames. Greg was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital after becoming distressed at the scene.

Firefighters say the home was destroyed as a result of the blaze. More than twenty fire companies from Livingston, Monroe and Genesee counties responded -- mostly for  tankers, as there was no water source on the road.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

David and Greg Luetticke-Archbell also own the Frost Ridge Campgrounds in Le Roy, which is currently the subject of two lawsuits related to live music at the campgrounds.
