HELENA- An overnight fire destroyed a home near Canyon Ferry Reservoir.

The fire broke out a home at 4175 Waterdance Rd. on the northeast side of the reservoir.

According to Tri-Lakes Fire Chief Bobby Drake, fire crews got the call just before 11:00 p.m. Monday night.

Drake says the fire started in the chimney of a wood burning stove. From the chimney, the fire traveled into the attic and spread to the rest of the home.
