One adult and two children were left homeless from an early-morning house fire on Margaret Road in Eggertsville, Amherst fire officials said.

The $120,000 blaze started about 2 a.m. today in the one-story ranch on Margaret, between Longmeadow and Eggert roads and not far from Northtown Plaza, the officials said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Eggertsville Volunteer Hose Company responded to the blaze and called in the Red Cross to assist the family.
