A cottage in Eagle Lake is a total loss after a fire Monday morning just before 11:00.

The Dysart et al Fire Department needed 14 firefighters to battle the blaze.

By the time they make it on scene, the home was fully engulfed in flames.

The fire department was able to prevent the fire from spreading to the trees but the property could not be saved.

No one was home at the time of the fire and no word on the cause.
