A fire on Wednesday destroyed a large single-family home on Pine Cobble Road in Williamstown that was still under construction.
The Williamstown Fire Department was aided by firefighters from Clarksburg, Lanesborough and Pownal and Stamford, Vt., as well as local and Adams Forest Wardens.
The fire was reported about 4:30 and witnesses described seeing black smoke above the hillside development from points in North Adams. No one was apparently in the house at the time.
The weather was hot and breezy and the fire soon spread to the brush. Firefighters spent several hours battling the blaze.
