An East Hampton home located on the ocean was decimated in a fire Wednesday afternoon as firefighters struggled to bring water to the blaze.

Tanker trucks from East Hampton Fire Department, Springs Fire Department and Southampton Fire Department shuttled water to West End Road, where there were no functioning fire hydrants.
