High winds engulf house in flames

CHATHAM -- A family of five are homeless after fire quickly engulfed their home on Tuesday.

Walt Layton, his wife and three kids lived in the home on Route 295 in Chatham. When fire crews arrived on the scene, the flames were confined to the back of the home. But high winds quickly fanned the flames and soon, the whole house was fully involved.

Eight fire companies worked to put out the fire. Investigators are still working to determine what caused the blaze.
